About the Fund

About the Fund

Speight's has always been the beer of choice by hard working men of the land around Dunedin. From our brewery sited in Rattray St we have a strong connection to our provinces unique environment. So it was a natural step for us to set up the Speight's Fund. The fund has been established to support not-for-profit groups working to preserve and protect Otago's natural environment. We hope the Fund will reinforce this relationship and make Otago folk proud that our brewery is part of their province.

Each year in August we will open applications until the end of October with the judging panel to make their decisions in November at which point successful applicants will be notified. Each year Speight's contribute $25,000. But the total pool of available funds is more than this as it is supplemented by the generous donations of people taking water from the Rattray St tap.
