Community Fund


Christchurch Airport regularly receives many 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 are required to consider carefully whether the group or project will have direct benefit for community members, so are unable to simply fund running costs or wages. As your prepare your application, please make very clear to us the benefit to the community from the project you propose.

When the recipients are agreed, their representatives are invited to a function at Christchurch Airport to meet the other recipients and airport staff, to speak to the group about the project the grant will support 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 are now open and will close on Friday 2nd March.


Please complete the Application Form and send with supporting documentation to or post to:
