Christchurch Airport regularly receives requests for
donations to charitable causes and/or sponsorship of community
group activities or projects. Requests for such donations and
sponsorships are made throughout the year and we aim to ensure
consistency in the evaluation of Community Fund applications. We
consider, therefore, whether the group or project will have direct
benefit for the community.
When the recipients are agreed, their representatives are
invited to Christchurch Airport to meet the other recipients and
airport staff, to speak to the group about the way they will use
the grant and to have photos taken for their own and our use.
The Community Fund is made up of donations in various currencies
collected in charity collection boxes around the airport, then
topped up by Christchurch Airport's own contribution.
Applications are reviewed twice a year by a small committee and
recipients selected as a result. There is no set amount for the
grants and each is made based on factors including fund
availability, requests by applicants and assessment of
the benefit to the community.
Applications closed at midday on Friday 10 March
2017 and we are currently reviewing donation requests. Community
Fund recipients will be announced in April.
The next round of applications is now open and will
close at midday on Friday 8 september 2017.
