2022 Funding Initiative
When a child has an official diagnosis, support may be tailored to meet their individual learning support needs based on the diagnosis’. Scientists have come to understand that neurodivergence can have many benefits. Neurodiversity is not the characteristics of neurological conditions but societies themselves that create barriers to the participation, achievement, and success of neurodiverse individuals.
The more we accept and understand that it’s quite common for brains to work differently, the more quickly we can go about accommodating people in ways that work best for them to learn, function, and thrive in society
Selected organisations will need to submit further information about their project in April 2022.
Projects eligible for consideration should have a direct impact on the community and address a community need. The projects should deliver a benefit for the community for over 12 months.
Eligible funding would include improvements or additions to buildings & properties for technology and hardware that will improve services to the community, courses that deliver a service direct to the community and will have lasting impacts, or workshops that will enhance staff education. We may also fund other projects with a capital nature.
Grants will be made only to charitable organisations (not individuals) and used only in New Zealand. We do not fund groups if the primary focus is on artistic, cultural, environmental or sporting purposes. We will focus on funding between $25,000 and $50,000 for each organisation.
