Fonterra Grass Roots Fund

The Fonterra Grass Roots Fund supports the rural communities where we operate by funding their clever ideas, projects and initiatives.


The wellbeing of our local communities is important to us and over the last six years we have proudly helped more than 1202 community projects all over New Zealand.

Our seven Regional Sponsorship Committees are spread across New Zealand and ensure that the local communities where we operate each get a fair share.

We support projects that are in line with our values of quality, safety, wellbeing, the environment, and fostering community spirit. Awards are granted for between NZ$500 and NZ$5000 and applications are considered twice a year.
