The Len Reynolds Trust 2017 funding round is now closed


Funding Round Closed 5 November 2017

Mission

The mission of Len Reynolds Trust is to build partnerships with local Waikato communities by supporting education, environment and social well-being.


About

Len Reynolds Trust was established in 1966 by farmers Len and Ada Reynolds as a ‘Trust Fund for the benefit of others’. Funds have been distributed since that time by the Trust. In 2014 the Len Reynolds Trust Board decided it was time to formalize the fund distribution process and appointed Community Waikato as Funding Manager. This means we administer an annual allocated portion of the Len Reynolds Trust Fund to the Waikato community. 
This funding round will open in early October, close mid-November and be paid out in December each year. Applications will be made online through the Community Waikato Website.
