Tiaki Fund

Helping you beautify your community

Does your area need a spruce up? Want to care for your local environment? We want to help you lead a successful environmental or beautification project in your community.

That’s why we’re offering grants towards the cost of locally led projects in South or East Auckland, with a total funding pool of $16,000 per year.

Whether it’s a waste clean-up, community mural, native planting or something else - if you want to make a difference in your community, we want to help you make it happen!

Community volunteers clean up a stream in South Auckland.

Funding is available for:

  • Waste clean-ups

  • Community murals

  • Graffiti guarding

  • Native planting to prevent graffiti

  • Clearing weeds/vegetation to open up a space

Funding grants are available to:

  • Schools and ECEs

  • Neighbourhoods

  • Community Groups

  • Youth Groups

  • Marae

  • Workplaces

Have a project in mind that isn’t on the list? Get in touch, we may be able to help!
