The James Gibb Fund was set up in 1989 to provide funding for “parish-based social and community service projects”.
The fund supports projects which make a contribution to social or community service by:
- improving the life and living conditions of people who have been deprived of opportunity, especially children and older people who face challenges such as poverty or disability
- delivering educational programmes that support people to live rich and full lives.
Applications where parishes link in with Presbyterian Support Central will have an advantage, as will new programmes rather than maintaining existing programmes. For more information on the objectives and guidelines download the James Gibb Trust fund guidelines here(PDF).
Applications must be received by the Trust manager by 31 October each year. Download the James Gibb general fund application form here. Download the James Gibb youth worker application form here. To apply, send your application to: James Gibb Fund Secretary C/O Presbyterian Support central PO Box 12706 Thorndon Wellington 6144
