Wednesday, 9 March 2022
9.00am - 2.00pm
Come meet the region's funders and give your project a lift! The Waikato Community Funding Expo is a great opportunity to talk to a range of funders all under the same roof. Come along and check out the stalls and attend one or more workshops. There's lots of practical advice, information and strategies to assist with your community group or project. Traditionally the expo has been held every two years.
To ensure the safety and wellbeing of stallholders and community groups, we have decided to host the 2022 Waikato Community Funding Expo online only.
Meet with Funders.
To try and maintain the benefit of having funders under one roof, the funders below will be available to meet via video conference at the allocated times on the expo date of Wednesday, 9 March 2022.
