The Lilburn Trust
- Established: 1984
The Lilburn Trust was established by Douglas Lilburn in 1984 with the Alexander Turnbull Library Endowment Trust.
It is known for funding the Lilburn Trust Student Composer Awards at universities and for over twenty years has supplied grants to performers, composers, authors, filmmakers, record companies and oral historians to help promote New Zealand’s musical arts, to advance musical knowledge and appreciation, and to preserve musical archives. The Lilburn Trust also recognises individuals who have given outstanding service to New Zealand music.Source: Alexander Turnbull Library, September 2007
