Your West Support Fund Recipients 2021

We are pleased to announce the details of the West Auckland organisations that will receive a share of the Your West Support Fund in 2021.

This initiative was set up to give back $1,000,000 worth of short-term financial assistance for registered charities and incorporated societies helping West Aucklanders, with the view that over time the fund will continue to be used to help those in need during challenging times.

With Auckland’s ongoing lockdown heavily impacting so many organisations, community need has been greater this year than in any previous year in the fund’s history. We know that many more groups applied for funding than we could support this time round.

Our focus was on supporting those West Auckland based charities and groups who had few other sources of funding and in many cases where their ability to continue to serve our community was placed in jeopardy due to the impact of COVID. 

What this meant is that some of these groups needed help to meet their basic overheads such as rent and utilities expenses.

Applications for funding were open from Monday the 9th of August until the Friday the 24th of September. We received 259 applications from a variety of community groups.

Each application was reviewed by a selection panel consisting of elected members from Portage & Waitakere Licensing Trusts. The million-dollar fund will be shared, in varying amounts, across 130 West Auckland community groups (see the list of successful applicants below).
