On November 1, 2022, the ProCare Charitable Foundation will open applications for grants from registered charities working to improve the health and wellbeing of communities in the Greater Auckland Area.
As in previous years, the total amount of funds available for distribution this year is $250,000. The minimum amount for funding requests is $25,000 – up to a maximum of $100,000.
June McCabe, President of the ProCare Foundation, says, “Since 2015, the ProCare Charitable Foundation has made more than $1.6 million available to organizations that:
• Promote or offer health-related activities
• Improve population health outcomes
• To improve through education or other services the well-being of communities in Greater Auckland
• Reduce health inequalities and alleviate poverty or deprivation
• Other initiatives or innovations falling within the objectives of the foundation.
“These grants are available through the generosity of our general ProCare practices to support and improve the well-being of the people of Tāmaki Makaurau,” concludes McCabe.
The application cycle will open at 9:00 a.m. on November 1, 2022 and close on or before November 30, 2022 if the subscribed quantity of applications is reached. Applicants should read the important notices and criteria on the ProCare website before applying.
Notes to editors
Only a subscribed quantity of applications may be submitted. In the event of oversubscription of applications received, the grant cycle will automatically close. If the subscribed quantity of applications is not received by the closing date of November 30, 2022, the grant round will automatically close at 5 p.m. on that date. Grants can be awarded to charities providing services in greater Auckland – i.e. the North Hills of Bombay to the southern limits of Warkworth including Waiheke Island and the Isthmus of Auckland .
About the ProCare Charitable Foundation:
The ProCare Charitable Foundation was established through the generosity of its shareholder members with the aim of improving the health and well-being of Auckland communities. In 2013, shareholder members donated their non-voting shares (B shares) so that the Foundation could receive dividends to build a capital base and an annual grant program to promote the health and well-being of disadvantaged communities in the Auckland region. The ProCare Charitable Foundation also welcomes donations from other sources. For more information
