Funding Applications

The district’s first ever cultural study was commissioned by the Trust and AEA Consulting to undertake an indicative cultural strategy for the Queenstown Lakes District to inform the trust’s grant giving and advocacy activities.

In due course, the trust will establish a procedure for the submission of grant requests by individuals, unincorporated entities, operating charities and private sector entities. The criteria for allocation will address the strategic contribution of the incoming grant proposal to the cultural vitality of the District together with the applicant’s capacity to execute the proposal.
