The Trust's region is the same geographical area as Central Electric
Limited's former Network Supply area. Organisations are only eligible for
a grant if the project or services directly benefit the community within this region.
The Trust provides a "helping hand" to organisations and groups which service a need in the community.
This need must be "charitable" (in its legal sense), which means an organisation or project must be related to welfare, education or religious activities, or have a purpose which is beneficial to the community.
Pioneer Generation Limited
Pioneer Generation is 100% owned by Central Lakes Trust which was established to grant funds for community charitable purposes. Since its inception in November 2000 the Trust has approved grants totalling over $70M to community projects and services in its region. Profits from Pioneer Generation go directly to Central Lakes Trust to help support its grants programe. For more information about Pioneer Generation, follow the link below:
