In accordance with section 109 of the Gambling Act 2003 the Donations Criteria are reviewed annually by the Board of Directors. The Board met on 23/11/2016 and conducted an annual review of the criteria, methods, system and policies it uses for consideration of applications for the distribution of net proceeds and determined that there was no need to change any of the existing conditions and processes. You can view the Donations Criteria here.
Pub Charity Limited has a policy of returning the majority of our funding back into the area where the funds were raised. To find out if we have any venues in your area, click here. Because our goal is to support the local communities where the funds are raised, even within a council area applications have a greater chance of being successful if they are in or near the suburb(s) or towns(s) where our venues are located.
Donations must be for an Authorised Purpose. The following constitute Authorised Purposes for donations under Pub Charity Limited’s constitution:
- (a) any purpose which or the time being constitutes a charitable purpose in New Zealand, including, without limitation:
