Established in 1998, NZCT is one of New Zealand's largest gaming trusts with 13% of market share. We are proud of the contribution we make to local communities, particularly in the area of amateur sport and active participation. We couldn't do what we do without the help of our hard-working gaming room operators.
NZCT pioneered the development of Regional Advisory Committees (see links in the navigation menu for details) whose members advise us on the distribution of gaming funds in their communities. These committees are made up of highly respected leaders who add local insight and knowledge to our grants decision-making.

During our 2022/23 financial year, NZCT generated $39.979 million for the benefit of Kiwi communities and distributed $39.863 million through 1,779 grants for a wide range of community good including community sport, rescue services, youth development, arts, and culture.
We'd like to thank the publicans who work with us, because without them we couldn't have achieved this result.
