Horizons is committed to creating opportunities for our Region to grow economically and socially in a way that preserves or enhances agreed environmental and social values. We do this is through sponsorship initiatives, our community grants programme, trusts and scholarships.
Horizons receives dozens of sponsorship proposals each year. Due to limited funds, strict guidelines have been developed to allow us to assess sponsorship proposals on a case by case basis. View more information about the sponsorship process and the full Sponsorship Guidelines to help in submitting your proposal.
Applications for community grants are sought annually in August-September for community-led projects that enhance our Region or encourage more people to engage with our natural environment. These projects must be non-profit making and align with Horizons’ goals. View more information about community grants to see whether your project could qualify.
The He Tini Awa Trust provides grants for community projects that protect, restore and create natural environments in our Region. View more information about the Trust and whether your project will qualify here.
