The Tour of Southland is a truly iconic event, generating tremendous community support and involvement, as well as publicity and profile for the region. The Trust’s vision is to support ‘A Thriving Southland’ and outstanding events such as the tour help to achieve this as it touches so many communities throughout the region. The Community Trust of Southland is therefore proud to have supported the Tour since 1998 and and we are pleased to be a major financial supporter again this year.
The Community Trust of Southland is your community owned grant making organisation and each year we provide a helping hand to hundreds of not for profit groups - both large and small - by providing funding for services, events, facilities, community projects and programmes which benefit the people and communities of our region.
Our granting is focused on supporting four pillars:
-Health, Wellbeing and Active Lifestyles
-Arts, Heritage and Culture
-Community Development & Community Economic Development
And we continue to have a strong focus on people, partnerships, participation and places.
We also help people to achieve their personal goals through:
-Community Leadership Scholarships, and
The Trust’s funding area includes the Southland province and the Queenstown, Glenorchy, Arrowtown, Tapanui and Heriot areas.
