History of award
The Carillon Club was formed in 1994 by a group of sports-minded Wellingtonians. Members of the Carillon Club are proud of Wellington's sporting history, but believe that the best is yet to come. It is important to us that our home-grown talent remains in the Wellington region to build on history and take it to another level. We can give our local talent a lift through funding and recognition of their achievements. The Club is run by an executive committee, the members of which donate their time and energy. DB Breweries has supported the Club from its first days providing administration assistance and support for fundraising functions.
We aim to support local athletes or teams of people aged under 21 who have been selected to represent New Zealand or the Wellington region in any sport. Applicants must show us that they need funding support for sport-related expenses, such as travel, equipment, clothing or coaching etc.
We will not fund the full cost of any need. Applicants must show that they have contributed to the costs. Most funding grants are for $500. From time to time we will make major grants of $1500 to $2000 in special cases of outstanding talent and need.
