Charities Act Review

Some users will know that the Charities Act is currently in the process of being reviewed.

Earlier in the year there were meetings held in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch.

As a result of those meetings a questionnaire was developed. Some members of the Core Working Group are asking for your help.  They are asking you to complete the questionnaire, but also please share it with your networks, whether registered charities or not, by email, Facebook, or however.

If you are connected to more than one group or organisation, we’d welcome if you could fill it out multiple times, giving the information separately for each one. The more completed questionnaires we receive, the stronger will be the data that we can gather, for input to the review of the Charities laws.

Here is the link to the questionnaire:

We realise the questionnaire is quite long but there are a lot of issues where we need data to feed into the review, and we really appreciate your time. We also appreciate that your connections and understanding with the Charities Act may be limited to changing details on the Charities Services website and completing the Annual return.
