Simkin House Fund
Applications are now open for the Simkin House Fund! This fund exists to support ‘grass roots’ youth ministry projects in the Anglican Diocese of Auckland. It is distributed once a year late in October. The trust will fund up to 50% of any project and will give priority to events (i.e. camps, retreats, and training) directly targeting teenagers. The total funds for distribution are normally between $2500 – 3000 (they are dependent on the interest earned by the Fund). If you would like to test an idea with anybody before applying, feel free to contact our Diocesan Youth Facilitator Karen Spoelstra (Phone: 093027261). Applications close on 30 August. You can apply by filling in the online application form here!
