Steelfort is committed to supporting Manawatu based organisations that enhance the region's sporting and worthy activities.
Steelfort's commitment to the Manawatu Turbo's is more than an investment in rugby. It's an investment in the heart of this community and a real shot in the arm for those who believe in our young people and their potential. Our support gives the union the ability to get the resources required to ensure it puts a competitive Manawatu rugby team on the field.
Steelfort has been the sponsor of the LawnMaster Awapuni Gold Cup since 2002. This Group Two weight for age feature runs at the club's Premier Sires Produce Stakes meeting in March. The Awapuni Gold Cup has been a feature of the Manawatu Racing Club since 1915 and has been won by some of New Zealand's champion performers.
The LawnMaster Classic, a New Zealand Golf Order of Merit event has been on the golfing calender since 1987.
In February 2013 it became part of The Charles Tour which is a series of 72 home golf tournaments comprising a field of both males and female amateur and professional golfers.
Played at the Manawatu Golf Club, the LawnMaster Classic is an ideal stepping stone to a professional career for amateurs and a chance for young and established professionals to play one of the most beautiful but exacting courses in New Zealand.
The Arohanui Hospice provides palliative care, comfort and compassion to hundreds of patients and their families each year. Steelfort has been involved with the Arohanui Hospice's support programme since 1995.
