Community Support - Variety Childrens charity
Refer a colleague to "The Balance Sheet" and help the Variety Children's Charity
Help grow your local CA community ("The Balance sheet") and make a lasting difference to some of NZ's less-advantaged children!
AccountingTalent has chosen to support The Variety Have a Go Scholarships programme theough the growth of "The Balance Sheet"community membership. The programme gives disadvantaged kids the chance to participate in extra-curricular activities – activities that their caregivers would otherwise be unable to afford. These experiences are a critical step in helping children to build confidence, learn new skills and develop lasting friendships.
Variety Have a Go Scholarships range from $200 to $500 per year, with the funds awarded used to support:
- Activity fees & registration costs (e.g. gymnastics, netball, soccer, swimming lessons)
- Sports uniforms, clothing and equipment (e.g. rugby boots, netball uniform)
- Music lessons and equipment
- Drama/dance tuition
- Extra tuition (e.g. English, Maths, computer programming)
- Career trips (e.g. leadership courses)
- Cultural activities
- Personal development activities (e.g. school camp, outward bound)
Each year Variety seeks applications from schools and communities across the country to identify children who would benefit greatly from a Have a Go Scholarship. They don’t have to be sporting superstars or academic whizz kids – just Kiwi kids who are missing out through no fault of their own.
For every additional 100 members who join The Balance Sheet community AccountingTalent donates $200 to Variety. Through a combination of your 'Balance Sheet" member referrals and our community growth donations, together we can make a lasting difference to some of these children, giving them the opportunity not only to enjoy their childhood, but to contribute positively to NZ society as they grow.
