There are two ways that we can offer grants to community organisations – either our donor decides which charities and causes they wish to support, or our donors enable the trustees of Momentum Waikato to make strategic decisions on the greatest impact their gift can have through the Vital Waikato Grant.

Successfully funded projects by the Vital Waikato Grant will be in the following categories, as informed by Vital Signs:

  • Vital WAIKATO
  • Vital Children and Youth
  • Vital Communities
  • Vital Culture
  • Vital Economy
  • Vital Education
  • Vital Environment
  • Vital Health
  • Vital Recreation

Applications for the Vital Waikato Grant will be assessed by an independent Advisory Panel of subject matter experts who, following a thorough due diligence process, will make funding recommendations to the Board of Trustees.
