Grants - Trust House Foundation
The Trust House Foundation is a respected, licensed Class 4 Gaming foundation.
Every year, we provide more than $4 million in community gaming proceeds to fund community events and organisations through grants.
Who can apply for a grant?
- Local not-for-profit organisations such as incorporated societies and registered charities. Find out about incorporated societies on the New Zealand Companies Office site.
- Local branches of national not-for-profit organisations.
The funding must go towards an event or initiative that enhances one or more of our communities: Wairarapa, Flaxmere, Pahiatua, Rimutaka or Porirua. Lists of recent grant recipients here.
Download a Grant Application Form here, or collect from our support office, or any one of our gaming venues.
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!
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
- Bert Lincoln
- Tom Jones
- 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.
