Through community sponsorship, we back our local schools, iwi, teams, and charities that do good in the hood.

Your project or activity could be up for up to $1,000 of funding or equivalent staff time if:

1. Pāmu staff and/or families are involved
2. The project or activity helps build healthy, happy, rural communities.

    ✓ Schools, education, or training
    ✓ Sport or club trials or tournaments
    ✓ Sustainability
    ✓ Environment and biodiversity

    How our community sponsorship works

    1. Plan at least a month ahead so we can get our ducks in a row.  

    2. Talk to your local Pāmu farm manager first and get them on board

    3. Use this application form with as much detail as possible to go to our Community Sponsorship Team. We meet monthly and will let you know if we need anything more from you.
