The Valley Project would not be what it is without the support of many different organisations.


Our initial funding from the Department of Internal Affairs came to an end in early 2016 and since then we have been building new funding relationships with Funders across the region.  We want to say a huge thanks to the Funders who have recognised the valuable contribution we are making in our community through their financial support in 2017:

DCC Community Grants, $2,500, for the Community Development Coordinator role 

The Sargood Bequest, $5,000 for Love the Lindsay activities

The Synod of Southland and Otago, $5,000 for the Community Development Coordinator role

Otago Community Trust, a $4,000 contribution towards the costs of the Valley Voice

United Way, $6,000 towards operating costs

Lotteries Community, $20,000 towards our Community Development Coordinator role

COGS Community Organisation Grant Scheme, $1,000 towards operating costs

Quaker Local Peace Grants, $1000 for Community Dinners during 2018

DCC Puaka Matariki Fund and Public Health South supported our Matariki Huka Nui in 2017 with grants of $500 each.

The OCT Capability Fund and the DCC supported our "Sharing our Learning" project that has seen us tell some of the Valley Projects story through a series of workshops.

We are also very grateful for the continued support of Dunedin North Rotary for continued sponsorship of community needs when asked.  The Inch Bar and Antidote Pharmacy generously sponsored CreekFest 2017, and the Gardens New World often give generously to our community events.
