Who Can Apply

Our School Event Grant is available to support early childhood centres, kōhanga, schools, and kura in Masterton to provide events that educationally benefit students within the Trust district.

The intention of the grant is to support events that bring students together for educational purposes. This may be within a single school or across several schools. School events that cater to one school only are limited to one grant per year.

Examples of events that have previously been supported include the Mathematics Competition, Photography Competition, and Student Led Conference Day.

The School Event Grant does not support travel to attend activities outside Masterton or sports trips.

Application Process

Complete the School Event Grant application form and submit. Applications with less than four weeks notice may not be considered.

Your application form must be fully completed and include a robust description of the benefits and outcomes your event aims to achieve.

The maximum amount available per event is $1,000. If the event is expected to cost more than $1,000, please provide evidence of confirmed funding for the balance. An event budget must accompany your application.

Monitoring & Reporting

The Trust requires a post-event evaluation report to be submitted within one month of completion of the event. This report  should include details of what was achieved, who attended, numbers attended together with a summary of how the funds were spent. Photos of the event are appreciated.

Any deviation from the original application needs prior approval from the Trust.

Grant funds not used for the intended purpose will be required to be reimbursed to the Trust.
