Description

The NZIOB Southern Chapter Education Fund was established in 1995 when the late Mr Charles Luney entrusted the chapter with the sum of $36,495.77 being the money remaining after the closing of the Canterbury Building Display and Information Centre which had operated in Cashel Street for 20 years.

By 1997 the founding Trustees of the Education Fund, with the help of the Community Law Centre and the IRD, had achieved a tax exempt charitable status and were ready to make the first disbursements. The Education Trust has charitable status under the Charities Act.

The Trustees policy of growing the fund while supporting current educational trends has been relatively successful. Since its beginning some $28,000 has been disbursed in various amounts to over 20 recipients and funds reached over $100,000 through various donations, fund raising activities and interest payments.

The Trust has also funded a number of educational industry lectures, the development of the CPD section of the NZIOB website and the recognition and celebration of industry icons. In 2015 the Education Trust Charles Luney Scholarship was established for a five‐year term, with two scholarships awarded in 2015 and a further two in 2016.

To date the Trust has been self‐funding, however decreasing interest rates have prompted the Trustees to acquire additional funding to continue these charitable works.
