About us

Making a difference in your community

Kiwis love their sport, and NZCT loves helping them enjoy and participate in their sporting passions.

Every year, we give millions of dollars in grants to thousands of applicants from a huge range of sporting groups - from rugby and netball to kayaking and lawn bowls. We are proud to be one the largest funders of amateur sport in New Zealand.

While sport is our primary focus, we also provide funds for charitable purposes such as rescue and life-saving services, education, health, the arts, cultural and community groups. Our funds come from NZCT operators up and down the country who run our gaming machines in their hotels, bars and clubs.


Where our funding goes

We're committed to ensuring money goes back into the communities in which it was raised. Around 95 percent of our grants will benefit the community where the funds were generated.  The remainder goes to national organisations like Outward Bound or Special Olympics who provide widespread benefits to many communities throughout the country.
