Hutt Mana Charitable Trust

Terms & conditions

  • The Hutt Mana Charitable Trust (hereinafter referred to as the “Trust”) is under no obligation to meet requests for grants. The funds belong to the Trust, which has the sole right to determine whether a grant will be approved, and no dialogue or correspondence will be entered into regarding decisions made on applications.
  • All grant requests must be received by the Trust by the closing date for consideration and are subject to the availability of funds (incomplete grants or grants received after the closing date may only be considered at the discretion of the trustees).
  • Applications must be future focused, ie the application must be approved prior to the event/project/purchase taking place. Retrospective applications cannot be processed.
  • Grant applications will only be considered in normal circumstances on a six-monthly basis, with applications closing on the last Friday of March and September. Only one application per 12-month period will be considered. Applications for grants will not be considered if previous grants have not been fully accounted for to the Trust.
  • Grants must be for the benefit of those domiciled within the Hutt Mana area. Consistent with the boundaries of the Trust, this in general terms includes the whole of the cities of Upper Hutt, Lower Hutt and Porirua, and that part of Wellington City comprising Johnsonville, Newlands, Broadmeadows and Tawa. Please be specific as to which area your grant application is for.
  • Applications must be from organisations within the above defined area or delivering a benefit for members of the communities of that area.
  • The project must be started within 12 months of the receipt of the grant.
  • The Trust expects an acknowledgement in your Annual Report and in any publicity connected with the project, as well as photos and stories of the use of grants suitable for publishing through social media, the Trust’s website and other promotional materials.
  • By agreeing to our terms and conditions you agree to go on our newsletter database to receive periodic updates from the Trust.
