Other funding providers
The Funding Information Service is New Zealand’s primary source of information about funding for voluntary organisations and individuals in the community. Funding information is collected from more than 600 different funder organisations and placed into several funding information databases. If you are seeking funding but do not meet the Council fund criteria, we recommend looking into Fundview to see what additional funding may be available or downloading the printable pdf below.
‘Fundview’ is a computer database of information about sources of funding for community groups. The user is able to search the database with specific details of their project. The database lists all funding agencies that fit your criteria and gives information on closing dates, funds available and how to apply. This allows groups to apply to the funding organisations that are most likely to consider their application. This is a subscriber paid website, although various outlets offer free access to it.
In the Waipa District, Fundview access is available at:
- Cambridge Public Library – 23 Wilson St, ph. 823 3838
- Te Awamutu Public Library – 157 Roche St, ph. 872 0055
Access to Fundview at these outlets is free, but most providers charge for printing out the information.

Each year hands-on funding workshops are available around the Waikato region.
