Help keep Harold Holmes' memory alive and support the promise of Rotorua secondary school students... now and forever!
Thank you for choosing to support the Harold Holmes Student Grant Fund. Your donation will help build a bright future for secondary school students from Rotorua who show promise of benefitting our local community – now and forever.
A leading local businessman and member of the Rotary Club of Rotorua for many years, Harold was passionate about Rotorua and its people. In 1991 he created the Harold Holmes Student Grant Trust which awards a scholarship each year to a local high school student to assist with the cost of their tertiary studies.
In 2012 the Geyser Community Foundation was honoured to be invited to take over the investments and management of the Trust and is delighted that the former Trustees, including Harold's grandson, Ryan, remain involved by working with Geyser to select the annual recipient.
Sadly, Harold died in 2002 but his wish to support young people who show promise of benefitting our local community will now be kept alive forever.
In 2017, your donation will mark the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Harold's extraordinary generosity. Find out more about the young people who have received support. Click here to view PDF.
Your donation will help continue to support the promise of
Rotorua secondary school students - now and for generations to come.
