Who We’ve Helped

In 2021 the Northland Grassroots Fund allocations went to: Te Orewai Te Horo Trust, ParentPort North Inc, Motivate Community Trust, Rongopai House Community Trust, Potahi Marae, Fresh Start 20/20 Family Services and Foodbank Inc. These are just some of the organisations funded via the 2021 distribution of over $92,000 made by Northland Community Foundation through the Northland Grassroots Fund.

Every year the Northland Grassroots Fund is made available to charities and organisations working with the local community to provide services and support all over Northland.

In 2021, with just over $92,000 available to distribute, applications were received from 32 organisations that amounted to over $356,597 worth of requests in total. The Northland Community Foundation’s Grant Panel, made up of volunteers from around the region, had the difficult job of selecting 16 organisations to be the recipients of this year’s available funds.
