New Zealand has an expansive regional network of community trusts.  One of the roles of these Community Trusts is to provide funding support to a range of community organisations and charities.

Along with their funding role, many of the Trusts also run workshops and provide great resources and support for community organisations in their regions - you'll find information about each of the twelve regional Community Trusts by using these links:
