Grants boost Whau projects

Whau Grants

Whau’s community groups and volunteers received $38,243.19 for their mahi through Whau Local and multi-board grants.

Twenty-six organisations received funding for activities ranging from arts, environmental protection to improving security and heating at community centres and venues.

Not all applicants received funding, and some were only partially funded; but every little counts towards their efforts at meeting the community’s needs.

“Getting some funding towards an activity can mean the difference between an activity benefitting the community or not taking place at all,” says Whau local board Chair Kay Thomas.

“A lot of the work is done by selfless volunteers, which is invaluable to us”

The Charlotte Museum Trust received a small amount towards to capturing history of LGBTIQ+ Community Places & Spaces in New Lynn. The Re-Creators Charitable Trust will use the funding they received towards free or subsidised classes of Community Upcycling DIY Workshops in various locations in Auckland from October 2022 to May 2023.

Whau Local Board offers local grants and quick response grants twice a year.

They are awarded for a range of projects or programmes from the arts, community, environment, events, heritage and sports and recreation.
