Funding Bodies

If you would like information on general funding, the Generosity New Zealand (formerly the Funding Information Service) databases can be viewed at the Marlborough District Library (Blenheim), the Picton Library and Service Centre, or the Awatere Community Centre.


You can search for local or national funders, including government, local authorities and gaming trusts.

FAQS offer advice on how to prepare your organisation’s funding bid.


Search for awards, grants and scholarships to help individuals with school, tertiary studies or professional development and training.
