Christchurch Diocesan Earthquake Recovery Fund

Bishop Barry Jones, Catholic Bishop of Christchurch, established a recovery fund to manage the distribution of money received after the 4 September earthquake and subsequently. The goals of the Fund are to:
  • To alleviate human suffering.
  • To assist community development and cultural activities especially those that seek to help rebuild community spirit and resilience in parishes and the wider community.
  • To help parishes continue to meet the pastoral needs of their parishioners post-earthquake.
  • To help parishes prepare for future events / improved disaster preparedness.
Funding is still available and applications are sought from parishes, organisations and interested individuals wishing to make a difference in the lives of those affected by the earthquakes. Organisations do not have to be Catholic to apply.
Information on the goals of the fund, eligibility, how to apply, and who has received money so far can be found here.
