Vodafone Foundation Canterbury Fund
What’s it all about?
The Vodafone Foundation Canterbury Fund was established in partnership with the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Trust in 2011, to support the rebuilding of Christchurch and respond to quake related needs. The aim is to make a positive, long term difference within Christchurch communities and be agile and flexible as needs emerge. Supporting youth is a major theme of the fund.
The Fund totals $4 million dollars with $2 million contributed by Vodafone and $2 million matched by the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Trust.
In 2012 grants of between $5,000 and $50,000 were made available for youth focused projects and capital/infrastructure projects.
Online applications for the next funding round will open in late 2013. Keep an eye on the website for dates!
