GABA Trust launches $10,000 grant

Tue 13 Feb 2007 In: New Zealand Daily News

The GABA Trust is now calling for applications for the 2007 round of grants, but this year, in addition to usual smaller grants, the Trust has decided to look for a major project, which could receive up to $10,000. Following the huge success of the Gay Auckland Business Association Charitable Trust Annual Christmas Auction, which again raised over $20,000 for the LGBT Auckland community, this year up to $10,000 will be available to successful applicants to the GABA Charitable Trust. “While this could be an existing project which wants to make a significant expansion, we would be particularly interested in supporting a new initiative which requires help to get started but would in future years seek ongoing funding from other sources” said Trust Chair Geoffrey Marshall. “The Trust could also be willing to assist with the development of such a project in non-monetary ways where we possess the skills or contacts. Of course, this project would have to fulfil the Trust's aims of being of benefit to the general GLBT community, or at least a significant part of it”. The Trust wishes to continue the tradition of providing smaller grants to individuals of groups, as this remains an important part of the Trust's work. However the new level of available funding is an opportunity for any group or individual with a great idea who needs money and, perhaps, assistance to get it started. The Trust would be happy to hear from people with good ideas at any level of funding request, and is open to talking with anyone who is considering applying before they put in a formal application. For a copy of the application form or for more information email the Trust Chair Geoffrey Marshall at Applications will close on 14th April, 2007.     Ref: GABA (m)
