Hope Project 2018

Support a national gospel effort at Easter

Click to see more details...

With public media no longer giving a voice to Jesus at times like Christmas and Easter — despite us being a decidedly Christian nation in terms of our heritage, will you help the name and presence of Jesus be heard at Easter again?

Following the success of the 2014 — 2016 efforts, it is proposed that the Hope Project be done every Easter.

  • The cost: It requires 1000 people or churches to give $600pa ($12pw) to see this happen.
  • The deadline: We nee $400,000 by 1st October to confirm a project for the following Easter (otherwise it is delayed year).
  • Booklet-4 draft: A vital part of each Hope Project campaign provides high-quality, multi-page booklets to every New Zealand household. Having done this three time to date, here you can view a draft copy of BOOKLET-4.

Will you or your church support the Hope Project for 2018, so Jesus’ presence can be felt nationally at Easter — and His message heard?

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.
