Photo: MATT LAWREY Applicants keen on innovative process By SIMON BLOOMBERG We are continually getting requests from sporting and community groups for funding, and over the years we have handed out an awful lot. After years of providing grants to organisations around Nelson and Tas- man, a Nelson company is tak- ing a novel approach to support- ing the region s community and sporting groups. The Car Company is offering $10,000 to a non-profit group or organisation in the region as part of its $10,000 Charity Drive competition. Groups can apply for the $10,000 grant on the con- dition they agree to be part of the promotion that will include media coverage of their organis- ation. The Car Company managing director Shane Drummond said one of the main reasons they organised Charity Drive was to encourage groups that didn t usually seek funding to apply. He said he also wanted to do something different by creating a novel process for applying for funding. We are continually getting requests from sporting and com- munity groups for funding, and over the years we have handed out an awful lot. What we have done with Charity Drive is almost reverse the roles and gone out and asked the groups to come to us. We have had an amazing response so far. We only marketed it last week and we ve already had lots of entries. We didn t expect to have so many. Although Shane was pleased with the response, he admitted it would create problems for the judging panel. There are so many deserving groups out there doing a lot of great work. It s going to be difficult selec- ting the winner. Shane said he hoped to make Charity Drive an annual event. Application forms for Charity Drive are available online at carcompanynelson.co.nz/charity- drive/charity-drive-application. Applicants are encouraged to supply as much supporting information as possible, such as photos and video clips, to help convince judges why their organisation should be chosen. A panel of judges from The Car Company, MORE FM, Nel- son Mail and one other indepen- dent person will select the recipient of the $10,000. Applications close at 4pm on Friday, May 24.
