Our staff carry out the day-to-day functions of running the Trust. This includes working closely with fund manager’s (Mercer NZ Ltd) and financial services provider (BDO, Rotorua).

They are also responsible for analysis and review of funding applications and development of funding recommendations for consideration by trustees.

Our staff are always happy to talk to organisations before an application is submitted, and we encourage groups to take advantage of this.
