The Kaipaki Settlers Hall Association Incorporated (The Kaipaki Centre) was first set up in 1933 with the appropriate constitution and was revised in the 1990s.
A new constitution was accepted by the companies office during 2011 and the Kaipaki Centre was granted Donee Organisation Status and Tax exemption in July 2012.
The Purpose makes very clear the Kaipaki Centre will focus on children/mothers/families while providing facilities for the men to play sport and socialise. These facilities will be available for all members of the community so that can take part in healthy participation and social interaction.
The barriers to participation are to be minimal and most activities are FREE as the costs of running and maintaining the centre will come from businesses who pay $1000 each year (they will gain the benefits of our Donee status - able to gain a tax rebate of 33.3%) plus supportive Gaming Machine companies and other sponsors.
We are very fortunate to have Fieldays as an annual sponsor and their 5K in year one of a three year agreement (plus another right to sponsor three more years) will look to be increased as we go along. Fieldays new management are very keen to be part of the local community and with their development plans at Mystery Creek the future is exciting for them and for the Kaipaki and surrounding districts.
