We will have a dramatic fall in funding from 2017, as earthquake related grants finish, so we're seeking 50 new supporters to raise $50,000

Youth In Need Sustainability

We have a small but dedicated group of individuals who give regularly to us, and it makes so much difference! We are able to apply for grants, but these aren’t guaranteed, and must be used for the specific purposes they were given and there is little room for discretionary costs when they arise. Therefore the Friends of Youth Alive Trust scheme has been recently used to cover discretionary and unattained costs such as camps, new games and resources, volunteer Tshirts, free activities at New Brighton Library, trainee youth workers, van maintenance, marketing, audits and other unexpected costs.

Our income is broken down into; 15% Regular Grants, 19% One-Off Grants, 23% Earthquake Related Grants, 12% Contracts, 16% Fees, 6% Grace Vineyard, 5% Friends of YAT, 2% Bank Interest, 1% Fundraising. In 2017 we have an expected shortfall in funding, as earthquake related funding has dried up. Our funding strategy is to increase our discretionary income through more fee paying services, social enterprises and individual donors. Our 2017 target is 50 new supporters to raise $50,000 per year, which is attainable if 20 x New Friends gave $5 a week, 10 x New Friends gave $10 a week, 10 x New Friends gave $25 a week and 10 x New Friends gave $50 a week.

We would love supporters to set up regular direct payments into our bank account, to help us become more sustainable and less reliant on grants.
