The Trust supports projects and initiatives that promote community wellbeing and sustainable economic development in Tairāwhiti.
We use our wellbeing framework, He Rangitapu He Tohu Ora, as a guiding set of outcomes for all funding decisions. Applications need to consider the fundamental principles of equity, sustainability and integrity. These are represented in the waharoa (gateway) of He Rangitapu He Tohu Ora.
Applications should also demonstrate how it aligns with Te aka rautaki ki te tau 2026, the Trust's strategic plan.
Our funding application will prompt you to describe how these principals apply to your project. Beyond the waharoa, the next stage of the framework is Ngā Muka – wellbeing outcomes. The six muka are complementary and when woven together, complete the holistic vision the people of Tairāwhiti have for wellbeing.
