The Foundation will seed fund projects that:
- Relate to New Zealand literature only (fiction, non-fiction, poetry)
- Deliver broad community literary or literacy benefit outcomes
- Demonstrate innovation including the use of innovative engagement platforms
- Are new or business expansion projects rather than business-as-usual projects
- Represent well-considered, robust propositions with identified, achievable and measurable deliverables
The Foundation will generally NOT fund:
- Business-as-usual activities or costs such as ongoing operational or staff overheads
- Ancillary project costs including catering expenses, travel, accommodation
- Projects that can access full funding elsewhere
- The writing or publishing of individual titles unless there is deemed to be a significant community benefit
