Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation Grants

☓ Applications closed

This year we we’re thrilled to announce an incredible $137,000 in grants are on offer to eligible charities, including the new $50,000 Heritage and People’s Choice Grant. The new grant celebrates the successful merger between Heritage Bank and People’s Choice Credit Union and recognises both organisations’ long history of community support.

A total of six grants are available and are to be used to support the overall costs of a specific program that has a proven track record of creating impact in one of our three focus areas.  They are not tied to individual aspects of a program, for example transport, wages or consumables.

Applications are now closed as we start the important process of reviewing this year's applicants. Successful grant recipients will be notified in mid-November 2023.
