Local Funding for Local Communities

Welcome to Grassroots Trust

We’re dedicated to providing local funding to local communities.  We share your passion and enthusiasm for amateur sport, education and various charitable community initiatives and we’re here to help.

Grassroots Trust Limited was established in August 2012 to support sport, education and community sectors.  Great care is taken to ensure funds granted are well used and for the authorised purpose and many local communities have already benefited from a Grassroots Trust grant.

Grassroots Trust operates in accordance with the Gambling Act 2003 and is regulated by The Department of Internal Affairs.
