Community Sport Investment Principles

We have four principles that guide our Community Sport investment decisions.

Investment will be made where there is a clear value proposition

Investment will only be made where a value proposition clearly demonstrates alignment with the strategic direction of Sport NZ and where the partner delivering on the value proposition understands how they will impact on that direction, and has the ability to do so.

Investment will improve the system long-term

Investment decisions will favour initiatives which add long-term value, through building strength and capability in the system that is ongoing.

Investment will be targeted for greatest impact

Priority will be given to investments which demonstrate the greatest impact on the system.

Investment will be grown through partnerships and leverage

Priority will be given to initiatives which create partnerships which can be leveraged to increase both resources and system impact.
