How to Apply

The Northland Grassroots 2023 funding round is now closed. The 2024 funding round is expected to open in May 2024.

The Northland Grassroots Fund grants around $90,000 each year to worthy causes and charities in Northland. Organisations can apply for a grant of up to $15,000.

Northland Community Foundation acts as a Local Donation Manager for The Tindall Foundation, a philanthropic family foundation working throughout Aotearoa to support whānau/families, hapori/community and te taiao/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 Te Tai Tokerau Northland.  The funds provided by The Tindall Foundation are boosted by donations made to Northland Community Foundation’s Northland Grassroots Fund.
