School Grants Funding

New Zealand has many great local schools, schools that are innovative and have the potential to provide a positive impact on the growth and well being of New Zealand children and the community. Unfortunately due to a lack of sufficient school funding and/or school grants these schools often never achieve their objectives or reach their full potential. 

The more successful schools now acknowledge that Charitable Trust fundraising needs to become an ongoing activity in order to provide long term sustainability and growth for the school.  The application to Charitable Trusts for school funding or school grants should form an integral part of every school business plan. A disciplined approach to applying for school grants will reward schools admirably with additional funding for a wide variety of capital projects and new initiatives. 

Having said that school funding can be quite difficult to obtain at present due to the impact of the current economic recession with many New Zealand Charitable Trusts experiencing an extremely high level of demand for donations.  

The application to Charitable Trusts on the behalf of schools is no different to any other type of funding application with success dependent on a strong 'case for support'. There are many factors that the funder will take into consideration when assessing an application for a school grant. It is important to be aware of what these factors are and incorporate as many as possible in your 'case for support'. 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.

FundingNZ has extensive experience in funding applications to most New Zealand Charitable Trusts and has the necessary expertise to create successful applications for school grants.
