Peter McKenzie Project: Call for ideas

Wednesday, September 06, 2017   Posted in: Resources and Information By: Administrator With tags: funding, children, families, young people

The J R McKenzie Trust has established a fund (The Peter McKenzie Project) to contribute to a reduction in the number of children, young people and families living in poverty. We need your Big Ideas to make it happen.

How this opportunity is different

The Trust want to fund and help people and organisations develop, test and refine their Ideas, so that they can make a real difference.

We are prepared to fund some Ideas over a long period. The project has a life span of up to 20 years.

If you are not able to develop your Idea, we might be able to connect you with others who are.

We hope to create opportunities for people to ‘spark off’ one another, and perhaps work together.

How to submit your idea, and apply for funding

  1. Read the information on the Peter McKenzie Project website.
  2. Fill out the short online form if you are still interested. You may want to upload a short audio or video.

Submit your Big Idea(s) by Saturday 30th September 2017. Ideas which make it through the first selection process may be offered funding for further development.

Contact the J R McKenzie Trust for more information (04 472 8876 or pmp[at]

About the J R McKenzie Trust

The J R McKenzie Trust is a charitable trust that is not afraid to quietly test the boundaries. Sir John McKenzie set up the Trust in 1940 with a vision of ‘a socially just and inclusive Aotearoa New Zealand’. It has a long and proud history of helping to build stronger communities, including funding programmes, advocacy and new Ideas.
