UPDATE: Estate of Ernest Hyam Davis and The Ted & Mollie Carr Endowment Trust
Due to the Trusts’ existing multi-year grant commitments and Covid-19 response grants aligned with the legacies of Sir Ernest Hyam Davis and Ted & Mollie Carr, we are no longer able to open a contestable funding round in 2020.  We look forward to opening this funding opportunity for mahi in the Auckland region again in due course.

UPDATE: B A Lewis Charitable Trust
Unfortunately the B A Lewis Charitable Trust will not be opening for applications in 2020, due to decreases in available grant funding and existing multi year grant commitments.  For more information about our grant funding approach to June 2021, please visit this page on our website.
