Once completed you can email your application to or post it to PO Box 3136, Greerton, Tauranga 3142.

This means you can download the form, fill it in on your computer, save the updated form, and email it to us at the address above. To access the document as an editable PDF you must have Adobe Acrobat DC on your computer or an equivalent programme. If this method does not work for you, you can still download the document, print it out, write your application out by hand and then either scan the document and email it to us, or alternatively post it to our PO Box.


Bowling/Croquet Club Funding Applications ONLY

Legacy Trust has a long history of supporting bowling and croquet clubs in the Tauranga region, often attending these events ourselves as participants or to present prizes at the end of the tournament or day's play. To assist in streamlining the requests we receive from these clubs our policy is to gift each individual club $300 per annum. If you wish to apply, then please download and complete our Club Funding application form below.


Thereafter, the applications are considered at the end of each month and you will be notified after that. '

Please note that you may only apply for one $300 grant per annum. Any other requests for funds over and above this figure will be considered by the trustees of Legacy Trust in February and September.
