The Royal New Zealand Ballet is extremely grateful for Four Winds Foundation‘s valuable support in the accessibility and education sectors. Our ground-breaking initiatives include dance workshops for schools, transporting primary and intermediate students to RNZB performances and “Touch Tours” for the blind & vision impaired. Together, we are achieving our common goals to reach the wider community and thus, enrich lives through these experiences.
Four Winds proudly supports the APO community and educational programmes through APO Connecting: “What the APO mentoring programme has done for us is given us a bridge to new skills. The mentors that have come into our school have worked with our teachers and students alike, built confidence and shared knowledge. We have already seen results in the progress of our students"
Applications received at the Four Winds office, through and by 4.30pm on the last working day of each month. are considered at the following month’s meeting. The Grant’s Committee generally meet to consider grants on the last week of each month.
Application forms are available to members of the public at all our gaming venues our. They can also be obtained from email@example.com or downloaded from this website
We receive hundreds of enquiries and applications monthly. While many are from organisations familiar with online grants processes we also fund smaller organisations and others who are not as tech savvy. It is Four Winds desire to ensure that as many potential valid applicants as possible can apply for funding. Those societies that allow only online grant application processes often eliminate or discourage those that are less online savvy from applying.
Before approved funds are spent elsewhere you need to contact the Four Winds office and seek advice. There is very strict criteria to adhere to under 'The Gaming Act' and before funding is approved suppliers are cross checked and approved. Therefore using another supplier that was not listed with your application may not be possible until they are checked and approved. If wishing to spend funds in an entirely different manner or purpose, then firstly the funds would need to be returned and another application made detailing the new purpose of the application.
Applications must be received at Four Winds office by 4.30pm on the last working day of each month. Applications received by this date will be considered by the end of the following month.
