Grants For Charitable Purposes
Sir John Logan Campbell was one of the first European settlers to arrive in Auckland and was acclaimed as one of the city's founding fathers. Sir John, who was known as the "Father of Auckland" gifted Cornwall Park to the people of New Zealand in 1901.
Sir John Logan Campbell's Residuary Estate is held in Trust in perpetuity to distribute the income each year as directed by his Will.
Generally charitable objects will fall into the categories of:
- Relief of Poverty
- Advancement of Education
- Other purposes beneficial to the Community
The overriding requirement for each of these categories is that the purpose is of "public benefit" and that any grants are for a sufficiently wide section of the community.
Who Can Apply For Charitable Grants
We consider applications only from organisations within the "Provincial District of Auckland". This covers approximately that part of the country North of Te Kuiti, Taumaranui, Turangi and the Mahia Peninsula and up to Cape Reinga. (Please refer to attached Map)
