Funding options for South Canterbury community groups will be the focus of two public meetings.

The community funding forums will be held in Timaru on March 6 and in Temuka on April 3.

The meetings are being organised by the South Canterbury Funders Forum.

Presenters at the meetings will include representatives from Trust Aoraki, the Aspect Trust, the Timaru District Council, the Community Trust of Mid and South Canterbury, Perpetual Guardian, the Department of Internal Affairs, the Southern Trust and Sport Canterbury.

The forums are a chance for groups to learn about funders in South Canterbury, along with what the organisations fund, and how to apply for their grants.

The Timaru meeting will be held at West End Hall in Maltby Ave at 5.30pm on March 6.
