The Otago Community Trust is a philanthropic organisation which applies its Trust funds for charitable and other purposes which are of benefit to the community.
Since its beginning, the Trust has distributed in excess of $150 million to communities across Otago. You can find information about applying here.
The Otago Community Trust is pleased to announce that it has launched a new Learning Impact Fund. The fund is available to all Otago schools within the Otago Community Trust funding area from 1 April 2017 to 31st March 2020.
The Trust has identified education of Otago’s young people as a priority area for funding and the Learning Impact Fund supports schools to address the specific needs of their students.
All schools will be sent correspondence from the Trust on the new Learning Impact Fund and what it means for them.
The Learning Impact Fund will not affect funding available to assist other projects supported by the Otago Community Trust. Schools can still apply for assistance for other projects under the Trusts general application process. More information on the fund can be found HERE
