Our Financial Policies and Terms

All payments made whether by cheque, Internet banking or Credit Card will be charged in New Zealand Dollars. We do not offer refunds on financial donations.

The AllTogether website uses the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) industry standard, the highest level of security available today for web-secured applications.

When will I get my donation receipt?

Donations over $5 can receive tax-deductible receipts. These receipts will be sent at the end of the financial year. Note that receipts can only be given where we can identify donations and have been given the donors name and  contact details.

Will accounts be audited?

Yes. Accounts will be independently audited, annually.

What if insufficient funds are raised?

Policies for various possible scenarios are created by the board where needed. This was demonstrated in the Hope Project in the 2011 to 2016 period, with policies providing clear guidelines, giving clear confidence to partners.

As a general principle, the heart of the Shining Lights Trust team and board would be to ensure that all invoices were paid – even if this meant personally paying them.

We believe our track-record demonstrates a combination of integrity, along with an ability to adapt to challenging circumstances, with successful outcomes.

What if too much funds were somehow raised?

They would be spent on other projects fitting the goals and values of the project toward which they were given.
