What we support and why
The Fletcher Trust aims to make a difference to New Zealand society and, in particular, to young people and their place and future within New Zealand and internationally.
The Trustees' current philosophy is that, while many factors make up the country's social structure, New Zealand's future can best be ensured by the investment in education at all levels. The Trust therefore concentrates on supporting youth and educational programmes directed at the pre-tertiary level.
The Trust was a founding member of Philanthropy New Zealand, an association of Philanthropic Trusts in New Zealand.
Information about obtaining funding for community groups and organisations can be found at the Fundview website, while the Breakout website provides details and guidance on awards, scholarships and grants for individuals.
