Grants boosting care in the community

Public Trust is creating lasting legacies in our communities.

Each year, Public Trust’s Grants programme funds initiatives that provide care and support for our communities to the tune of $11 million.

The money goes towards helping teenagers flourish through the Graeme Dingle Foundation, providing care for the homeless and vulnerable with the Wellington City Mission and keeping us all safe through St Johns.

Public Trust is the trustee of 450 charitable trusts. Some of these trusts pay income to named charitable beneficiaries while others distribute funds to individuals and applicants who have applied for funding. Each of these trusts was set up by a generous benefactor who wanted to create a lasting legacy in their community, long after they were gone.
