Our Community Funding

Apply for funding

Our new COMS grants management system is now live and we are accepting new applications.

If you are an existing client, we have migrated much of our funding organisations data into the new system. This means that many of you will be able to associate your login to organisations in the system when you start your new application.

If you are a new client, you will need to create an account for your organisation.

Community Funding

Aotearoa Gaming Trust is a proud funding provider to a wide range of community groups and charitable causes within New Zealand.

To apply for funds from Aotearoa Gaming Trust contact our Grants Team here

We are always open for applications that benefit the community. In most cases, applications are processed within 20 working days. Requests for grants larger than $30,000 or more are reviewed at the next available monthly Board of Trustees meeting.

The Trust, is required under the terms and conditions of our license issued by the Department of Internal Affairs, to return at least 40% of gaming machine proceeds to the community. AGT strives to exceed this 40% requirement by returning even more to the communities in which the funds are raised.
