Charitable trusts can expect another round of requests for funding for the Forsyth Barr Stadium, following a Dunedin City Council decision earlier this week.
The decision came after a report to the finance, strategy and development committee that showed 16 trusts had been asked for money in the last few years, and four had come up with $7.9 million.
There were some questions about how much work the council's rates funding working party had put into raising money.
Responding to a question from Cr Fliss Butcher, acting chief executive Athol Stephens said the working party's efforts had been "fragmented".
Deputy mayor Cr Chris Staynes said fundraising was "not the easiest activity", and he noted $15 million had been received from the Government.
Cr Paul Hudson moved the working party have another go at fundraising from trusts "in the light of our ability to identify specific projects" at the stadium.
The motion was carried.
