$500k grant to support Clutha Gold Cycle Trail extension
The Clutha Gold Great Ride Cycle Trail extension has received another funding boost in the form of a $500,000 grant from the Otago Community Trust.
Otago Community Trust has been moving towards ways to create impact for young people through funding mechanisms.
The Trust has long identified youth development as a priority funding area for our region. Over time, our focus on youth has developed, refined and evolved, and in 2017 we positioned Youth Health, Wellbeing and Employment as a key Funding for Change strategic priority.
In early 2019, we commissioned Mātāwai Consultancy and Gemma Griffin Consultancy to undertake research into the sector.
This research was undertaken to help trustees gain a clearer understanding of who and what Otago Community Trust has been funding, and what real outcomes have been generated for the region’s young people and their families as a result of this funding. Otago Community Trust wishes to be bolder and more strategic to meet the areas of most need.
