Give to Laidlaw
For more than 95 years Laidlaw College has been preparing men and women to respond to God’s call on their lives. Graduates of the College can be found in positions of influence and leadership all over Aotearoa New Zealand and the world.
Laidlaw College is far more than just a tertiary institution – it is a community of students, staff and scholars shaped and compelled by the Gospel; a community deeply committed to growing disciples and raising up leaders who are rooted and established in love. The special character of the College means that we cannot solely depend on government funding, and are heavily reliant on fundraising activities in order to keep fees affordable and to fund initiatives that fall outside of our educational mandate.
We consider those who give to Laidlaw College to be true partners in our work. In recognition of this partnership we think it is important to keep them informed about what is happening and how their gifts are being used. We are also interested to hear their thoughts on our strategic directions and our vision for the future of the College.
To facilitate this communication we publish a newsletter, Encounter, which is distributed via mail or email. We also compile a substantive report of each year’s activities across the different areas of College in an annual report for distribution to members and donors. In addition, we encourage our financial supporters to become members of Laidlaw College Incorporated Society with the ability to vote during members’ meetings and participate in discussions around vision and direction.
Laidlaw College is registered with the Charities Commission (number) and gifts over $5 are eligible for a tax refund.
