The Generosity New Zealand database is a great place to start looking for funding for personal projects and activities.
Generosity New Zealand maintains a searchable database that will give you the best matches for funding you may be eligible for, along with closing dates, application requirements and contact details.
givME allows individuals to find funding for school or tertiary study, arts, travel, cultural and sporting activities, personal or professional development.
This is a subscription service, but Palmerston North City Library card holders can access it free though the library website or at your local library.
To access the database, go to the Digital Resources page on the City Library website
