The Otago Community Trust is in the process of updating its systems relating to how we process our Donations and this includes our on-line donations application portal.

You may still apply to us as normal but please be aware that you may not receive a decision from us until after March 2018. 

Please note that any events or festivals applying for funding are required to have their donation request to us, at least three months prior to their start date. Please feel free to contact us should you wish to discuss how this change is likely to affect your organisation – 0800 10 12 40
