16 Raukawa marae mandated to the RST
Our many marae form the anchor point for our people, a place where whānau and hapū connect, share and restore their bonds of kinship. Our marae are unique places that we all hold close to our hearts. Helping our iwi members to sustain the vitality of their marae is a key commitment made by the Trust.
The Raukawa Settlement Trust distributes over $500,000 in total funds each year in the form of annual marae grants to our 16 Raukawa marae.
The distributions are managed through the Raukawa Charitable Trust – our social services arm, and the funds are derived from the profits made by our investment company – Raukawa Iwi Development Ltd. For a person to be able to register with the Raukawa Settlement Trust, you must be able to demonstrate your whakapapa to one of the listed marae below.
