Pacific Youth Future Makers

Pacific Youth Future Makers is a Foundation North initiative that puts grantmaking into the hands of young Pacific people.


This group of youth leaders is making decisions about a new and experimental fund that will see small grants going to projects that benefit Pacific communities in South Auckland.   

The Pacific Youth Future Makers are excited to announce a new Fund which has been 100% designed and driven by them - the Future Makers Fund.

Pacific  Youth Future Makers invite you to apply for a small grant between $2500 and $7500. They are looking for projects by individuals or groups doing great things to benefit Pacific communities in South Auckland and to empower young people, their families & communities. 

This fund is designed to give out small amounts of funding with a light application process and a short response time and the decisions are made by Pacific young people.
