Youth Glide New Zealand Incorporated

24 March 2016

The Charities Registration Board has decided that Youth Glide New Zealand Incorporated (the Society) does not meet the Charities Act’s registration requirements.

The application was declined because the Society’s primary purpose is to promote the recreational sport of gliding. Although the promotion of a recreational sport is not charitable in and of itself, the law recognises recreational purposes may be a means of achieving a charitable purpose, for example health or education. While the Board accepted the Society had secondary purposes to advance education and promote the efficiency of the armed forces, it considered the Society’s primary purpose to be recreational, therefore non-charitable.
