Helping to Rebuild Christchurch

Christchurch Earthquake Recovery Trust (CERT) was incorporated on the 18th of August 2011 with a view to provide financial assistants in the rebuilding of Christchurch after the devastation caused by the February and June quakes.

The Trust aims to distribute net proceeds to recognised appeal funds for the purpose of assisting with this recovery process.

This includes making grants to appeal funds such as the Christchurch Earthquake Mayoral Relief Fund, The Red Cross 2011 Earthquake Appeal and the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal.

In addition to the  Trust's primary purpose of supporting Christchurch Earthquake Recovery, the Trust may also provide other grants towards general public education, educational scholarships, the promotion of public parks or museums and support for non-commercial emergency rescue services.
