Grant Application

Grant Application forms are freely available in clear public view next to the gaming machines
at member sites as well as at various other locations. Photocopies or faxed copies cannot be
accepted. Grant Application Forms downloaded from this website are acceptable.

All applications are subject to availability of funds and compliance with the Authorised Purposes
Statement. Completion of an application form does not constitute approval of the request for funds or, if approved, does not mean that further payments to the same recipient or for the same purpose will be approved in the future.

The Grant Application Form must be completed by the applicant only.

Site operators cannot make any decisions or recommendations about applications and cannot receive completed Grant Application forms. These must be forwarded directly to The Mainland Foundation. Click here for our postal details.

Application Process


Retrospective Applications Cannot Be Approved

All grants must be applied to specific and future based purposes. That is, a grant application must be received by The Mainland Foundation before an event is held and all unpaid future costs thereof will be considered. Applications received less than 4 weeks prior to the event or activity being applied for are less likely to be successful. A valid application contains all the required documentation as outlined in the checklist contained within the actual form itself.


All complaints must be in writing and posted to P O Box 1982 Christchurch. All compaints recieved will be investigated by the General Manager and referred to the Board for prompt resolution. If a satisfactory resolution cannot be achieved, independent mediation will be sought to resolve any outstanding issues.
