The Period Place

Estimated Time: 8 - 12 Hours Over 1 - 2 Months

The Period Place is jumping in with both feet and applying for charity status. The main tasks we need are: - working with us to create a set of rules (we want this to be a bare minimum document, no BoT yet, although this may follow over the next 12 months) - talk us through the application process - let us know what to expect for the first year, as well as reporting at the end of it - any templates, guidelines or support available for the reporting required at the end of the year - information on tax and working with us to complete a tax exemption. We have an outline of a strategic document in place and can use this as a starting point if needed. We would like to be a registered charity within the next 3 months and happy to hear from volunteers who could help with any aspect of our request.

Working location

Auckland wide is possible. West Auckland preferable. Skype/video calling can be an option too.
