Since the Community Forum we have had a number of people approach us who would like to be involved but are unable to assist in the day to day workings of the group and would like to contribute funds instead.
As the activities of Voice for Walcha will involve the use of professional services (e.g. legal services), as well as printing, advertising and other administrative costs, we will endeavour to use funds raised to allow for these exercises.
Contributions for members of the executive or committee’s time will not fall under this description. It is estimated that for the costs of services listed above, in relation to the current project (Winterbourne Wind), will be approximately $40,000.
We have created a “policy for handling funds” that can be found below. It talks to how we will keep track of donations and spending, signatories etc.
