13 Projects Completed, More Work Still To Be Done

The Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Trust has now funded 13 initiatives, with more to be announced shortly. Funded projects include support to quake-hit businesses, video conferencing facilities for students, sports fields and playgrounds for children, and more. You can see a full list of the projects funded on our website (

The Trust’s focus is on large scale, multi-beneficiary projects that will have the widest possible benefit in Canterbury. There are many funders in New Zealand helping community groups, businesses and individuals to recover. Our role is to fill the gap and to fund projects that would not otherwise be possible

The Trustees have adopted a portfolio approach to the fund. The portfolio allocation has been made across the Trust’s seven funding categories. It provides a framework the Trustees will use to ensure there is a balance between the wishes of donors and the needs of the city.
