We're pleased to assist people in their area of excellence, be that sporting, cultural or community activities.
Our personal development grants help South Cantabrians striving to attain excellence in their field of endeavour. As we're local first, the grants are given out to those who reside in the Alpine Energy electricity distribution area.
Grants are awarded within a mix of cultural, sporting or community activities, but not for tertiary education studies.
Over the years, thousands of locals have seen their personal development goals boosted through our assistance and financial support.

There are many worthy candidates seeking funding in South Canterbury. We're fortunate to have many talented and dedicated people in our region. While this is heartening, it does mean difficult choices have to be made as there's a limit to the funds available.
Successful applicants might not get the full amount applied for and we don't allocate funding to school sports teams.
Our sponsorship advisory committee considers a range of applications across sporting, cultural and community areas of personal development.
Tuition expenses/fees or activities which generate income for the recipient will not be considered.
