How to Apply

The Northland Grassroots Fund grants around $80,000 each year to worthy causes and charities in Northland. Organisations can apply for a grant of up to $15,000.

The Northland Grassroots 2020 funding round is now closed. We expect the 2021 funding round to open in May/June 2021.

Northland Community Foundation acts as a Local Donation Manager for The Tindall Foundation, a philanthropic family foundation working throughout Aotearoa to support families, community and the environment.  We distribute donations on behalf of The Tindall Foundation to projects and initiatives that support The Tindall Foundation Family/Whānau Focus Area within Northland.  The funds provided by The Tindall Foundation are boosted by donations made to Northland Community Foundation’s Community Fund.
