There are some activities the Foundation does not normally fund.  We do not normally make grants for:

  • Building and associated capital items
  • Property maintenance
  • Purchase of vehicles
  • Projects that are already complete
  • Fundraising initiatives
  • Organisations not based in New Zealand
  • Publication and distribution of magazines
  • Website development

The Foundation understands the pressure on many organisations as the government funding on which they have come to rely is reducing.  However, the Foundation does not generally fund core services which the government might be expected to fund.

The Foundation will, on occasion, fund individuals where it can be demonstrated that people with intellectual disability will benefit.
