At Fonterra we value the communities that we are part of. The Fonterra Grass Roots Fund is our way of giving back to these communities, by supporting the projects, ideas and initiatives that bring our communities together.
Through the Fonterra Grass Roots Fund, community groups are invited to apply for grants of $500 to $5,000. These grants are offered to support projects that will help bring their community together, and make it a better, safer, more vibrant place to live. Since the fund began we have provided over 2500 grants. These include grants to school groups, educational groups, charitable trusts, sports clubs and local emergency services for a wide range of environmental, community and health and safety initiatives.
Check out our sponsorship guidelines below, to see if your community initiative qualifies for the Fonterra Grass Roots Fund. Grants are selected in March and August each year, so get your application in for the next round of funding!
