Kapiti Run for Youth explains fundraising partnerships

The Web Genius Kapiti Run for Youth fundraising model is focused on returning as much money as we can on an annual basis via official Fundraising Partners who are working in the local Kapiti youth space.

All funds raised are split 70-30, meaning, 70% is paid to the Fundraising Partner chosen by the participant at the time of registration and 30% is retained to go towards the running and promotion of the event. To be an official Fundraising Partner you need to be working in the ‘youth space’ in Kapiti.

It is important for participants to understand the significance around their choice of Fundraising Partner as 70% of what they raise will be returned to that Partner. “We like this approach as we believe it offers a strong incentive for a variety of youth-based organisations to get involved and raise as much money as possible to use within their work to benefit youth initiatives in Kapiti. Fundraising Partners are encouraged to promote their involvement as then participants can be thoughtful about who they choose to raise money for,” says Helene Judge, Campaign Manager.

Gordon Campbell: On A Trade War With China

As things currently stand, the White House has NOT included New Zealand on its list of allies whose steel and aluminium exports to the US will be exempted from US President Donald Trump’s recent hike in tariffs.

Given that the tariffs in question have been imposed under section 232 of the 1962 US Trade Expansion Act (whereby the national security of the US is supposedly at stake) this American failure to treat New Zealand as an ally is historically significant. After all, our troops have fought and died alongside the US in every major global conflict – the two world wars, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan etc – for the past hundred years or more. More>>
