Financial summary 2018
The 2018 Competition is expected to incur total costs of around $150,000.
The main items of expenditure are:
Judges costs $36,000
Event Management and Publicity $26,000
Venue Hire and Stage Management $15,000
Piano Hire, Tuning and Transport $15,000
Net ticket sales and contestant entry fees should amount to about $30,000
KIPC will be dependent on community and private donors to meet the remaining costs of $120,000
While historically the KIPC Trust has always succeeded in raising enough funds to meet its costs, it would take considerable comfort from having one or two major supporters thus allowing greater financial security.
DONATIONS VIA BEQUESTS
The KIPC Trust or its antecedent entities have been organising piano competitions and recitals in Kerikeri for the past 28 years. The trustees are aware that music lovers who have enjoyed such events during their lifetime may be moved to provide a lasting legacy to sustain the activities of KIPC for future generations through a bequest from their estate. Sometimes such bequests are a surprise to the recipient and other times the organisation is informed.
The KIPC Chairman Sylvia Burch, (09) 407 4582 or Treasurer Tony Norman 021421052 are the first point of contact for supporters who wish to discuss the possibility of such arrangements for the benefit of KIPC. Discretion, confidentiality and sensitivity are assured.
