Apply for Funds

General Funding Applications

Please read the trust policies on distribution before submitting your application, so that you are comfortable that your application will meet our criteria.

There is no formal process for funding priorities, instead recommendations come from both supporters of the Legacy concept and known community needs.

Legacy Trust has a long history of supporting bowling and croquet clubs in the Tauranga region. To assist in streamlining the requests we receive from these clubs our policy is to gift each individual club $300 per annum. 

You may submit your application online (see below). Alternatively you can email your application to or post it to PO Box 3136, Greerton, Tauranga 3142.

Please note: All applications take three months to process from the time of the application to your organisation being notified on the decision.
