The Halberg Foundation is a charitable organisation founded in 1963 by Olympic legend, Sir Murray Halberg ONZ, MBE. The organisation is based on the belief that all people, regardless of their ability, should have equal opportunity to enhance their lives through sport and recreation.
We are excited to welcome our new Chief Financial Officer Fiona Jakobs to the Aotearoa Gaming Trust team. Fiona is a Chartered Accountant with a BCom in Accounting and Dip Grad in Finance, she also has a BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
Our gaming operation is grounded in strong venue partnerships, up-to-date gaming rooms and exemplary compliance practises. We invest in new equipment, technology, training, and compliance tools. We use our resources effectively and efficiently allowing us to increase profitability at all our venues.
Since our inception in 1998 approximately $327.5 million has been distributed to communities around New Zealand. The Board of Trustees are careful stewards of community funding and alongside the grants committee great care is taken to distribute to a wide variety of organisations who have a strong community focus.
We support operating costs and/or project costs.
If you require any further information or would like to discuss your application, please contact one of our Grants Team or phone us on freephone 0800 424 274.
We understand that venue payment is extremely important to venue operators. Optimising turnover is the key to maximising venue payments. We do this by running the best machine configuration and layout for your room and the area in which you operate.
AGT pays all operators weekly and ensures they are paid the maximum allowable by DIA in any one year. Each week the venue operator is sent an email detailing the amount received explaining the payment.
