HLC has set up a Hobsonville [Point] Community Fund under Auckland Foundation so that the community has a pool of funds available to benefit and strengthen it for present and future generations. Funds are granted to informal groups / individuals as well as registered charities as long as it is deemed for charitable purpose.
The fund requires an Advisory Group of 6-8 people to decide on the grants to support causes in Hobsonville Point and to lead and coordinate simple fundraising activities to generate additional funds. Auckland Foundation takes care of all the legal, financial and administrative duties associated with a charitable foundation.
If you would like more information about applying to be on the Group, please join Lettie Bright from Auckland Foundation and Kathleen Waldock from HLC for light refreshments on Tuesday 26 September at the Hobsonville Point Information Centre (Catalina Café building) at 7pm. Please RSVP by email to Kathleen.firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on the Fund, please read this document or call Lettie at Auckland Foundation on 021 818 307.
