Waikato District Community Wellbeing Trust

In 2010, the Waikato Foundation Trust proposed to distribute its capital fund to projects or trusts to fund projects of a community nature which will result in long term benefits to as many people as possible within the geographical area of the three constituent territorial authorities namely Hamilton City Council, Waikato District Council and Waipa District Council.

The Waikato District Community Wellbeing Trust was established to receive funds from the Waikato Foundation Trust which wound up in 2010. $2.56 million was transferred to the Waikato District Community Wellbeing Trust in 2011/12.

The Trust distributes funds that:

  • Promote the social, environmental and cultural wellbeing of the Waikato district and its communities; and
  • Deliver on the aspirations and community outcomes of the Waikato district identified and promoted by the community and endorsed by Waikato District Council.
