Community Event Fund
The Community Event Fund supports grass-roots events which create opportunities to build and celebrate community pride and for our communities to connect and celebrate our diversity. Events contribute to Waipā being a great place to live and maximise our facilities and public spaces. The fund supports not-for-profit community organisations hosting inclusive, low-cost events in our community.
