Small Grants

Last year all centre received part of the amount they applied for.

  • Looking at last years applications – both successful and not – it appears that Rata do not fund for play equipment and resources under $3500. This is likely because there are other charities that will fund these. If you can apply to a Pub charity then go there.
  • Wages for co-ordinators, cleaners and adminitrators and rent were successful.
  • Learning resources and equipment for $5000, a $5000 shade sail and storage shed with tree removal were also successful.
  • They do not fund for basic educational resources.
  • You need to complete a simple application form, which focuses on the outcomes of your project or the needs of your organisation.
  • What Rata Say they fund. This is their blurb for both small and large grants.

Rata support operating costs and/or project costs.

  • Operating costs may be considered to support the operating and administration costs of community organisations.  This may include salaries, plus general overheads such as rent, power, phone and administration costs.
  • Project cost grants may be available to assist funding to one off community projects, events, assets or programmes.
