Winner of Tier 4 NZ Charity Reporting Awards 2019

The awards, organised by Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ), recognise best practice among registered charities in adopting financial reporting standards which give greater transparency and consistency among charities.

Winners range in size from national electrical industry training organisation Electrical Training Company (ETCO) through to the Reporoa-based Empowered Learning Trust. Entries are judged on the effectiveness of their communication, their innovation, compliance with standards and overall presentation.

Peter Vial, New Zealand Country Head for CA ANZ praised the quality of award entries. He was pleased to see registered charities presenting information in ways that articulated their activities clearly and concisely.

The winner in each of the four tiers will receive $1000, while those highly commended will receive $500.

 “I’m Co-owner of CrossFit Taupo and The FitFoodie, Mum to Rongomai aged 4 and Partner to Manunui Te Heuheu! I love to cook and train so kinda living the dream!
I’ve wanted to be a part of this event since it started – I haven’t missed one yet and it’s a great new challenge and fabulous opportunity to support local charities!
To be honest I struggled at school due to bad eyesight and still do. So to give children a great head start in life is my motivation to raise as much as I can for Empowered Learning!” – Jules Baillie
