Norman Kirk Memorial Trust

About the Trust
The Trust was established in 1976 to commemorate the life of the late Rt. Hon. Norman Kirk, Prime Minister of New Zealand from 1972 to 1974. The Trust's capital comes from donations made in Norman Kirk's memory by individuals and the Governments of New Zealand, Australia and several South Pacific nations.

The Trust seeks to promote the welfare and progress of the people of New Zealand and the South Pacific, especially those who have the capacity to benefit from further education, study or training, but who need financial assistance in realising their potential.

Who we want to help:
  • disadvantaged or disabled people who are committed to taking advantage of "second chance" education or training
  • people seeking a qualification or training which will enable them to make a greater contribution in the community
