The Volunteering Northland Endowment Fund has been set up under the umbrella of the Northland Foundation, for the ongoing assistance of the organisation.
• Volunteering Northland is a non-profit organisation providing a recruitment and referral service for volunteers and facilitates and enhances volunteering in general.
• Local organisations and organisers of one-off community events that employ volunteers sign up at the volunteer centre and list their available opportunities for volunteers.
• The opportunities are accessible on-line, at the centre, advertised in local media and promoted at public events. The volunteer centre matches potential volunteers with opportunities.
• The centre provides more opportunities for youth, migrants and others who are looking to find their place in the community.
• The volunteer centre supports and provides training for the volunteer coordinators, raising the level of professionalism.
• The centre provides advice, advocacy and recognition for the volunteer.
Now donors can provide the ultimate gift – a legacy in their Will to the Volunteering Northland Endowment Fund. In partnership with Northland Foundation, people are encouraged to consider a gift which will go on forever. Bequests (a gift through a Will) are invested in perpetuity and the interest distributed every year to the Trust for their ongoing work.
Volunteering Northland is a Charitable Trust registered
