Community Trust of Southland is your community owned grant making organisation.

From Stewart Island to Glenorchy, Te Anau to Tapanui and all the places in between, we provide a helping hand to hundreds of groups - both large and small - by providing funding for facilities, services, events, community projects and programmes. We also help people to achieve their personal goals through scholarships.

Since 1988 we have been supporting your region with grants and scholarships across a range of sectors including;

  • Arts & Culture
  • Community Economic Development
  • Education
  • Environment
  • Health & Social Services
  • Heritage
  • Sport & Recreation

We are proud to be associated with so many people and organisations working to make the south a better place.

About Our Online Application & Reporting System 

Applying for our funding and completing accountability is:

  • Very accessible - you can access the system at any time to make applications, to report on a grant or scholarship or to view your application (or accountability) submitted online. 
  • Quick, easy & more efficient - you can save progress on an application and return to complete it at a later time or date. You can also cut and paste information from a previous application made online or from your own documents, and you can electronically upload supporting documents. 
  • Environmentally friendly - our move to online means less paper for everyone which is good for our environment.

If you have any questions about applying online please refer to our Applying Online Frequently Asked Questions or email your query to info@ctos.org.nz
