As New Zealand’s pre-eminent provider of philanthropic services, Guardian Trust has the tried and tested experience to ensure that one person’s charitable goals and visions can become a reality.

We are proud to provide charitable organisations and individuals with access to funding opportunities through the enduring legacies of our clients and serve local and national communities with the seamless and transparent transfer of grants.

Discretionary Charitable Trusts

These trusts open annually for applications, with successful applicants receiving funds to assist charitable purposes in New Zealand.

Details of each trust’s history, objectives, and potential distributions are outlined below, along with an online application form to be completed with all relevant information.

We have a number of trusts open for applications now, some coming up for applications in the near future, and those that will be open later in the year.
