Women in Sport Fund
To nurture and inspire women and girl’s participation in sport, by providing funding to support athletes, coaches, and officials based in greater Ōtautahi Christchurch. These scholarships will grow their exposure and success, and by sharing their stories to other athletes it will create the ripple effect of inspiration to yet more women and girls who can see what’s possible.
Four grants will be issued each year. Two grants will be allocated to athletes, one to a coach, and one to an official/administrator.
To kick things off, we’re looking for 100 generous philanthropists to donate $1,000 forming the core of our club of supporters.
As a donor of our special “sports club”, you can come along to four events every year. You’ll hear from coaches, athletes and of course the recipients of the sports scholarships. What’s more you can bring along a young female as your guest to inspire them.

These totes and t-shirts celebrate our legacy of female leadership here in greater Ōtautahi Christchurch and are a call to action to for women and girls from Christchurch, Selwyn and Waimakariri to continue to act as changemakers.
The design was provided by two very talented artists, Kophie Su’a-Hulsbosch and Janine Williams. The design reflects the mural they created which was launched on Suffrage Day 2023, at 92 Hereford Street.
Profits from the sale of the T's and Totes go towards our Kate Sheppard Fund to support and champion today's outstanding female leaders.
The Christchurch Foundation was set up to ensure that philanthropy in Canterbury could operate in a cohesive and effective way that has impact. With this in mind, we are looking for Patrons who want to be part of that legacy.
