Every year, we grant funding to hundreds of initiatives that make living in our communities more social, more interesting, healthier and safer.

Who can apply for a grant?

The funding must go towards an event or initiative that enhances one or more of our communities: Wairarapa, Flaxmere, Pahiatua, Rimutaka or Porirua.

Get started

First, check your organisation is eligible. Then you can submit a grant application form.

Make sure you send us all the required information listed in the form. It’ll make things much easier later on!

Download a grant application form here. Or pick one up from any Trust House gaming venue, or from our Support Office in Masterton.

Due dates for applications

Trust House Foundation meets to consider grant applications about 2 weeks after each due date. Please allow plenty of time for your application to be considered. We are unable, by law, to fund projects that have already taken place.

Who decides which organisation will receive funding?

Trustees of the Trust House Foundation carefully review all applications and decide which ones will receive grants. They consult widely, including with the Masterton, Flaxmere, Rimutaka and Porirua net proceeds committee.

The Trustees are:

  • Jock Kershaw
  • Lucy Griffiths
  • Mena Antonio
  • Litea Ah Hoi
  • Tom Jones
  • Ken Kibblewhite
  • Karl Taucher

Our Trustees are informed and impartial in deciding how grant funding is distributed. Read the Trust House Grants Policy, pick up a copy from any of our gaming venues, or request one from our Community Support Secretary.

The Gambling Act 2003 prohibits gaming venue personnel from being involved in the grant application process. This includes being involved in decisions about grants to the community and the provision or management of applications for grants to the community.

Using the Trust House logo

If you’ve received a grant, you’re welcome to use the Trust House logo on your marketing material. This is not compulsory. We have a range of logo files to choose from, depending on what you need.

Grants in action

Sailability Wellington Trust

After four years of hard work, Sailability Wellington Trust celebrated the opening of The Duncan Renouf Jetty on Sunday 18th November at Titahi Bay Boating Club. Over three hundred sailors, supporters and sponsors of Sailability Wellington gathered for the event.

The Greytown Community Sport & Leisure Society

The Greytown Community Sport & Leisure Society was formed in 2003 after a group of keen Greytown residents were concerned enough to form a sport management committee to ensure that key issues affecting the growth and development of sport and leisure clubs were been addressed.
