Community Policy > Charity
New Zealand is a generous society and New Conservative will work to protect people’s charitable initiatives and activity.
New Conservative will protect and encourage charitable activities and will:
Protect Schools/marketplaces/groups fundraising from unnecessary bureaucracy
Amend current legislation to protect Volunteers from prosecution under the health and safety except in cases of criminal activity or gross negligence
Review the charities commission to ensure that the board uses clear and impartial objectives in determining the status of organisations/groups
Apply normal corporate tax rules when a charitable enterprise engages in commercial activity in competition with other businesses.
