"Helping West Coast communities make a positive difference".

The West Coast Community Trust operates under the Community Trusts Act 1999. Its purpose is to manage its investments and apply the income from these investments by way of grants for charitable, cultural, philanthropic, recreational and other purposes in Buller, Grey and Westland.

So that grants reach as many people as possible, the Trust donates to the following sectors: ARTS/CULTURE/HERITAGE, COMMUNITY WELLBEING, EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTANABILITY, HEALTH, SPORT/RECREATION, YOUTH.
