YEPT relies wholly on donation from individuals and funders to provide free Yoga and Meditation (real rehabilitation) for prisoners in New Zealand. Our work is fully funded by ordinary people who are providing an extraordinary opportunity for personal transformation to fellow souls.
With payroll giving, as a donor you don’t need to collect receipts and wait until the end of the tax year to claim your tax credit. Instead, your employer will calculate the tax credit you’re entitled to each payday that they make a donation. So your take home pay will include any relevant tax credits.
Employers seeking to establish payroll giving schemes in their workplace can find helpful information at www.payrollgivinginfo.org.nz.
If you have the capacity to organize a fundraising event in your area please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Establish and Support Classes in Prison
Winning prison managers over is job one. They insist on sustainable programs. Once programs begin, teacher well-being has a direct impact on the consistency and quality of classes taught. Our teachers work entirely voluntarily now, bearing all costs themselves. To maintain consistency we need to begin to help teachers meet their expenses which include training, transportation, preparation, work missed. Help teachers help prisoners by donating here.
