Harold Thomas Rotary Trust
This Trust was established by Rotary International Past President Harold Thomas, (Rotary Club of Auckland) in 1973.
In 1985 the Trust received a magnificent gift from Past District Governor Bernie Ross (Rotary Club of Manurewa) and his wife, which added greatly to the capital of the Trust. The Trust has available approx. $100,000 for distribution each year to Rotary Clubs and considers applications for grants as soon as received.
Assistance to Rotary Clubs is usually limited to 50% of the cost of the project up to a maximum of $10,000 for each project.
The objects of the Trust are to:
  • Assist financially any child, resident in the Pacific Islands who is in need of medical treatment or care in New Zealand, including fares and related costs.
  • Provide medical assistance for children in New Zealand or elsewhere.
  • For medical research.
  • For charitable purposes as defined in the Charities Act 2005.
Grant applications by Email are preferred and there is no specific application form.  Applications are considered as soon as they are received.
