As at July 2023

The Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Trust has a specific role to play in the overall rebuild effort by funding charitable projects and complementing the efforts of other agencies already working in the community to address the adverse effects of the earthquakes in Canterbury.

As the Canterbury region moved from immediate response to long-term recovery from the earthquakes, so did the focus of the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Trust.

The categories of funding are:

There were many organisations working to assist the revitalisation in Canterbury, and the Trust had an obligation to donors not to duplicate these efforts. Instead, the Trust focussed on 'filling the gaps' and funding major initiatives that have widespread benefits. Latterly the Trust focussed on community infrastructure and services - those things that make a city vibrant and worth living in.
