Grants for Good.
June 20, 2023
Do you have a great idea that could make a real difference, but need funding to make it happen? HealthCarePlus understands that providing grants to fund small projects can transform a great idea into a real game changer. If you need a grant to undertake a project in 2024 that may benefit your sector or wider community, HealthCarePlus’s ‘Grants for Good’ may well be the answer.
Last year, ‘Grants for Good’ supported a wide range of amazing projects both large and small and helped individuals with funding for professional development and hardship. For example, they supported Westland High School, as they aim to implement a project-based learning program for at-risk students. With the help of the funding, the students have been able to take ownership of their learning by creating a business and applying their skills in literacy, research, and cooking. The program has resulted in increased attendance and engagement among the students, especially among Māori students.
