Yes. We understand that to support some of the outcomes we want to achieve, we need to think about support for unregistered groups or to help groups become ready for applying for funding. Foundation North will continue to support unregistered groups by allowing them to apply under the umbrella of a registered organisation.

You will be able to register in your own group’s name and tell us which organisation will act as your legal umbrella/fund holder. NB: both your group and the umbrella organisation must be registered on Foundation North’s Funding Hub. Once your registration is processed, you will be able to access the funding request forms on the Hub. Support documents will need to be provided along with your funding request by your group and the ‘umbrella’ organisation. You can find more information about umbrella funding requests here or call us on 0800 272 878, option 2.

Not unless services are directly delivered or directly impacting on the Auckland and Northland region. Please see our operating boundaries.
