Does the Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust support events?

The Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust may, from time to time, support events that have clear links to the aims of the Trust. Applicants seeking funding for an event will, in addition to the information above, provide evidence that the event:

  • has obtained necessary resource consents (if required)
  • complies with all relevant legislation and statutory obligations (e.g. occupational health and safety, public health, fire regulations, council bylaws).

Who does the Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust fund?

The Trust provides funding to individuals and not-for-profit organisations. Branches of not-for-profit organisations with a national body may also apply independently.

Applicants are not required to be Chinese or descendants of early settlers. The Trustees encourage members of the Chinese poll tax descendant community and members of the wider community to seek funding from the Trust for suitable projects.
