Hi, can you please help me and my kohanga. I don’t know how or where to get funding for an outside playground!!!! This is my first time trying to get a grant.......I'm really on the fundraising committee but I just found out there is no funding committee so I'm giving it a go

The Contents of this Guide

1.  Why fundraise

2.  Grants available and how to source information on grants

3.  Improving your success rates in applications for grants

4.  How to get more funds with less effort - other ways to get funds

5. Thinking outside of the square for novel ideas for fundraising

1. Why Fundraise

The Ministry of Education Governance and Management Support Tool (2009) for ECE Services states that services should:

  • Identify fundraising targets and plan fundraising events.
  • Obtain information about available grants and apply for those which are relevant.

Note: your service's constitutional status will affect your eligibility.
