Stand Like Stone is pleased to announce the recipients of grants from the 2018 OneFortyOne Community Capacity Building Grants. The partnership commenced in 2014 and has to date distributed $80,000 across eight charitable projects that have built capacity in the Limestone Coast. The OneFortyOne Community Capacity Building Grants have delivered a further $50,000 into the community, with five projects receiving support in 2018.

The OneFortyOne Community Capacity Building grant round is made possible through a funding partnership between the Stand Like Stone Foundation and OneFortyOne Plantations.

“OneFortyOne is strongly committed to the Limestone Coast region and is proud of our ongoing partnership with the Stand Like Stone Foundation. Supporting the wellbeing of people in the region will create the positive future we are all striving for. We have seen wonderful outcomes from the projects funded previously and we remain committed to those initiatives that deliver real value back into the community,” said Willie van Niekerk, General Manager Green Triangle, OneFortyOne Plantations.

“The funding partnership with OneFortyOne assists our region to grow and become resilient. The increase to $50,000 funding this year has enabled the support of more worthwhile projects and will assist to deliver real and sustainable impact in local communities,” said Georgie McKay, Stand Like Stone, Executive Officer.

In Aotearoa New Zealand, Māori communities have a strong spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other. We strive to build meaningful relationships with iwi as tangata whenua (people of the land/region), to be responsible intergenerational kaitiaki (stewards/guardians) of the land where our forests grow.
