New Zealand Rowing Association Incorporated

11 September 2015

The Charities Registration Board has decided that the purposes set out in New Zealand Rowing Incorporated’s rules are to promote rowing itself and to promote success in rowing at an elite level. These purposes aren’t charitable.

No wrongdoing is involved, but developing and supporting elite athletes and promoting a particular sport is not charitable.

The decision, explaining the Board’s reasoning, is available below.
