Community Grants - Community Funding - Grant Applications


FundingNZ - Over 18 years experience in writing grants applications to Charitable Trusts in Auckland and New Zealand.

New Zealand has many great new community initiatives that are innovative and have the potential to provide a positive impact on the health and well being of the New Zealand Community. Unfortunately due to  a lack of sufficient funding or grants these new initiatives often never reach their full potential. Funding can be difficult at present due to the economic recession with many New Zealand Charitable Trusts having closed, amalgamated or restricting their levels of donation. It is critical at this time that careful consideration is given to proposal writing and the construction of the actual  funding application so as to maximise your chances of success. 


Grant applications need to get the funders attention and stand out amongst your competitors


Funding applications need to be clear and simple but persuasive  

FundingNZ will write your applications for you. 

FundingNZ has long standing relationships with most Charitable Trusts in New Zealand including New Zealand Lottery Grants, Cogs, Lion Foundation, Southern Trust, Pub Charity, The Trusts Charitable, NZ Community Trust, Sky City Community Trust and ASB Community Trust ( now Foundation North). 

Our previous experience in managing non profit organisations provides us with empathy, knowledge and understanding of the particular funding requirements of your the New Zealand funding industry and the unique process required for fundraising to be truly successful. As part of this process we like to work closely with non profit organisations to identify the organisations goals and to create a funding plan that will support and assist the achievement of these goals. This is a rewarding process as it helps organisations identify and focus on their key objectives and formulate a funding strategy that is synergistic to those objectives. A well constructed funding plan will keep the organisation focused on achieving key objectives. 

For most clients grant application includes all of the processes listed below :

·      The Business Strategy - Your 6 Key Objectives

·      The Funding Plan - Your Short & Mid Term Strategy

·      Funding Application - Your 12 month Funding Plan

·      Proposal and Grant writing 

Funding applications must promote the organisation's mission, image, culture and objectives to funders in the most positive light. While providing a conclusive "Case for Support" a successful funding proposal needs to also provide "Donors with a Vision".  

Creating successful funding proposals is our specialty. The Charitable sector has become quite competitive and therefore it is imperative that you become pro active with your fundraising strategy. Many clients have noticed that they can no longer rely on regular channels for financial support, so its vital that new relationships are formed to offset any drop in grant income from existing providers.  It is a time to strengthen and extend your relationships, clarify your vision and mission and “restate your story” to existing and new funders. 

FundingNZ can assist you in creating relationships with new funders, many of whom you my not know exist. Working with you, we will create your case for support and write the applications for you to submit to funders.

Whether it is just 1 application or over 40 applications call us today and take the first step today towards future sustainability.
