Supporting our Community
SiCE Grants Program
What is it
The SiCE Grants Program is our way of giving back to the community and providing thanks for the support we receive.
Through project-based funding we aim to support the development of creative ideas and help elevate concepts that positively impact the scene.
By supporting innovative individuals & organisations do what they love to do, we hope our Grants Program will stimulate further creativity while bringing joy to many people across New Zealand and the world.
Join as a member or contributor today and help facilitate creative endeavors across New Zealand.
How are funds raised?
— Revenue Sharing
Every time someone purchases a membership or contributor plan, we will allocate $10 towards the Grants Program.
By signing up and gaining access to some great perks, you also directly support other people & groups making positive impacts in the scene.
Coming soon we will begin fundraising activities where the money raised will go directly into the Grants Program.
Keep an eye out for our silent auctions, events, promo offers & crowdfunding campaigns in the coming months.
Launching in 2021
The SiCE Grants Program will launch in 2021 and consist of multiple funding rounds across each year. Within each of these funding rounds, grants will be classified under selected categories to help make the application process easier and more defined.
All applicants will need to present a case that clearly details what they are doing, the type of support they require and what they hope to achieve.
Each application will need to be well thought out and include all relevant information to make the decision process as easy as possible.
Further information on how to apply, the grant types, our criteria and the selection process will be provided closer to the launch date so keep an eye out for announcements.
