Please note: Mackenzie Charitable Foundation do not make grants to individuals.
This Foundation was established in 1976 by brothers Alan and Don Mackenzie. They were farmers of Ealing who wanted to leave a lasting legacy for the community they had lived in.
The specific objects of the Foundation are summarised as follows:
- The purposes of research, treatment, provision of equipment in relation to, and the education and training of skilled persons relative to, the disease of cancer.
- Research, development, education for, training and expansion of, the science and practice of agriculture.
- For charitable purposes generally but with an expressed desire by the settlors that the Trustees take into account fully the needs of young people who suffer physical or mental handicaps or have less chance in life than many of their peers.
In addition the Settlors of the Foundation included in their original Settlement Deed a clause which directed to the Foundation Trustees a preference for grants to be made in such a way that they shall confer the greatest possible benefit upon the residents and potential residents of the Province of Canterbury.
Please note: Any overdue accountability reports can negatively impact your grant application. Please make sure any outstanding accountability reports are submitted before any new grant application.
The form is designed specifically so that it will provide the Foundation Trustees with the information they need when considering the application. It is important that the form be completed fully and accurately, as this will avoid unnecessary additional administration.
