NEW ZEALAND—CHARITIES COMMISSION PUBLISHES INFORMATION SHEET ON SPORTS AND RECREATION ORGANIZATIONS

The New Zealand Charities Commission has updated its information sheet Charitable purpose and sports and recreation organisations. It sets out the current legal position on the charitable status of sport and recreation organisations.  Sports and recreation organisations can qualify for registration as charitable entities under the Charities Act if their purposes are exclusively charitable.  While the courts have not recognised the promotion of sport for its own sake as charitable, the law has recognised that sport can be the means by which charitable purposes are carried out.
