Welcome to Oxford Sports Trust Incorporated
Oxford Sports Trust makes grants from the proceeds from gaming machines to our communities in the following areas Wellsford, Waipu, Whangarei District, Kaikohe, Kerikeri and Kaitaia. Our aim is to provide support for local community organisations to drive their success, making our communities stronger.
Oxford Sports Trust receives many requests each year seeking support and whilst we review in detail every application we simply can’t support all applications due to funding limitations.
Important Information before you commence your application. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.
