Anstiss-Garland Charitable Trust
Diana Anstiss and Lilian Garland established the Charitable Trust by deed on 18 December 2000, to take effect on the death of the survivor of them both. Diana Anstiss died in September 2012 and the Anstiss Garland Charitable Trust duly came into effect.
Under the terms of the trust deed, Ms Anstiss and Ms Garland direct the Trustee to exercise its discretion to pay income from the fund for and toward charitable purposes within New Zealand.
The Trustees have elected to focus on a particular sector each year in order to provide meaningful grants to recipients.
In 2019 the Trust is focussing on charitable purposes which will be of benefit to the following:
- Promotion of development which advances and empowers the lives of people from a position of despair towards an adequate survival (lifestyle) and self sufficiency (30% of available income).
- The protection and care of children and young people and families, the elderly, those at risk and victims, including education, understanding of their needs, rehabilitation and restorative justice (25% of available income).
- Preservation of historic buildings, sites and taonga (treasures) including the “on-going past” (15% of available income).
- Promotion of programmes and advocacy for human rights issues and for those disenfranchised and disadvantaged (12% of available income).
- The well-being of the flora and the fauna to sustain them and the environment, including the protection of endangered species (10% of available income).
- Protection and care of animals, including the education to understand their needs (8% of available income).
