Funding over the COVID-19 Lockdown period. All Akarana gaming venues have been closed at lockdown levels 3 and 4 . This has severely impacted our ability to make grants. While Akarana is still accepting grant applications (grants remain available for authorised purposes), almost all grant applications will be placed on hold. If you are considering making a grant application, we recommend that you delay making the application until 3-4 weeks after Auckland returns to level 2 (this is when the bulk of our gaming venues will come back online). Please stay safe and look after each other. Akarana Community Trust


Akarana welcomes grant applications from a wide range of non-profit organisations. Akarana is a major supporter of amateur sport, and supports programmes such as breakfasts for children in low-decile schools. Akarana is committed to making high-quality, local grants that support general community, cultural, and religious causes.

Akarana could not provide this valuable community funding without its partner bars and hotels. Akarana is committed to supporting its venue operators by providing the best possible equipment, and a high level of personal service.



Akarana is grateful to its hard-working venue staff, who ensure that gaming is operated in a safe and efficient manner and remains at all times a source of entertainment, not harm.

The venues make it possible for Akarana to provide essential community funding to the community.
