Event funding (formerly the Impact Fund)
Events, tournaments and conferences in Whanganui have previously been able to apply to Whanganui District Council for funding through what was called the Impact Fund. In 2013 the way these funds were allocated was changed.
Events are no longer able to apply to a contestable fund throughout the year but may request seed funding for an event or a one-off grant from the Economic Development and Visit Whanganui budgets.
The purpose of these funds is to:
- To provide seed funding for events in the early stages of the event's development
- To increase the number of visitors to Whanganui which gives an economic return to the district
- To generate on a national and international level positive publicity for Whanganui
This flow chart will help you take the steps to see if your event is eligible.
You can find out more about this funding and the requirements for applying by reading this information sheet, or by talking to the team at Visit Whanganui:
Louise Follett - Conferences Lead & Promotions , Whanganui and Partners on 06 349 3254 or email@example.com.
