Other funding options

GivUS and GivMe

If you or your group does not meet the criteria for any of the grants, we still may be able to assist you. Council has access to Generosity’s grant database GivUs and scholarship database GivMe. These can be accessed at Oamaru Public Library, Citizens Advice Bureau, Waihemo Service Centre or via visiting the Waitaki District Libraries website.

GivUS and GivMe are nationwide databases of funding available. We are more than happy to guide you and your organisation to a scheme that could be of benefit to you.

Fantastic funding folder

The Fantastic Funding Folder has been put together to make the process of seeking funding easier for your organisation. The folder prompts you to insert the information specific to your organisation. Follow the prompts and the folder will become your customised funding resource, helping your committee members to complete applications quickly and efficiently.

It may take a little time to customise the Fantastic Funding Folder. Work through page by page to find out and gather what’s required. Once your folder is complete, all you need for funding applications will be together in one place, and the process of submitting an application won’t seem as daunting. For best results, review the folder every year, making sure all the information is current.

We hope the Fantastic Funding Folder will reduce the stress of seeking funding, encourage you to broaden the number of applications you make and increase your success rate. Please feel free to contact us if we can help further.


For further information on Fantastic Funding Folder, please contact telephone 03 433 0300 or email service@waitaki.govt.nz.
