CHAIRMAN’S ANNUAL REPORT

The Board of Trustees met for a strategic planning day in May 2013. We decided that our 26 year old Constitution needed updating. While the old one has served us well, changes aplenty such as professional rugby and regular funding by New Zealand Rugby have had significant influence on how we operate. The new Constitution was ratified at a Special General Meeting in September. The Trustees are very clear on our core purpose of supporting our VIPs (Very Injured Players), and their families. However there is less clarity around the definition and degree of injury, and who, among NZ rugby players we take responsibility for. Professional Rugby has changed the original approach of the Foundation, - “looking after all New Zealand rugby players”. Today, the professional players have separate insurance and ongoing care programs. Our problem here is around the certainty that no player can fall through the gap between the two – the professional group and the amateur. We will be working to get greater assurance around this over the next few months. New Zealand Rugby very kindly agreed to raise the level of financial support that they provide to the Foundation for VIP Grants. This gives us the confidence that we can meet increased pressure on our funding in those bad years of high number injuries. It’s very pleasing to note that 2013 was the second successive year of no spinal cord injuries, and we sincerely hope that this can be continued. On a much sadder note, we did have an unfortunate death as a result of a head injury and haemorrhaging, and we pass our condolences to the family and friends of Willie Halaifonua. Mark Peters has succinctly summarised our financial situation in his report. I concur that we did not achieve the revenue streams that we had hoped for, and that we need to address this in the coming year. The Foundation must not take its focus away from raising funds to support the Grants that it supplies. This revenue allows us to balance our first priority of supporting our VIPs, with our second priority of retaining funds to protect our future activities. Our strategic planning day allowed us to deliberate on succession within the Board. During the year we welcomed BG Williams and Simon Tremain as new Trustees of the Foundation. As a charitable organisation within the realm of rugby we are fortunate to have the quality, experience and passion to continue giving to our sport and the people who cherish this. BG adds to a growing list of past New Zealand Rugby Presidents who have been Trustees of the Foundation and Simon gives us the link back to Kel Tremain who created the Foundation originally. We are also keen to have a balance in the skill sets and experience of our Board members. Dr John Mayhew has already provided us with valuable knowledge around serious injuries, rehabilitation and recovery expectations. Having a medical practitioner as part of the Board gives us quality advice in an area that others of us have very limited experience. I look forward to having John’s position as trustee ratified today. Succession, of course, has two sides to it. People enter and at some stage, it’s time for them to leave. Today, DJ (Sir John Graham) will be presiding over his last AGM for the Foundation. DJ joined the Foundation in 1995 and was asked by our Founding President – Sir Russell Pettigrew – to take on the role of President of the Foundation, at the AGM in 1996.

CHAIRMAN’S ANNUAL REPORT

DJ does not seek accolades; instead he applies his wisdom and leadership to a task in hand. He sorts out the priorities, focuses on the context rather than the content, and so provides all around him with clarity of purpose. DJ has been an inspirational leader for the Rugby Foundation, his role as President of this organisation has positioned us as the leading charity within our sport throughout the world. We now have in excess of 100 VIPs that the Foundation supports in some degree. All these, and their families and friends owe a great debt to DJ for his contribution to the Foundation and its ongoing ability to fund projects and support new injuries. From a personal viewpoint, it’s been an honour to have had the guidance and occasional mentoring from someone as experienced, focused and caring as DJ. The Foundation will miss you and will always have a debt of gratitude for your willingness to serve rugby in the way that you have. Also stepping down at this AGM is Richie Guy who is another stalwart of the game at all levels and an ardent believer in the cause of the Foundation. Richie has taken on many projects during his time as trustee. On the financial side we can thank him for his resolve in reinvesting surplus revenue into capital to protect our core investments against inflation. He has been equally passionate about safety in the game and asking for greater focus on safety at both set piece and general play. A few years back, Richard Hill from Hawkes Bay, and one of the original trustees, took a leave of absence due to issues at work. Richard provided us with the legal knowledge we required and was also part of the team that developed our original Constitution. Like all trustees of the Foundation, Richard has given his time and effort to help others who have suffered life changing injuries. We acknowledge this support and thank him for the service he provided. So, succession will mean that some people will come and others will go. We still have a very strong Board of Trustees and we have a wonderful management team of Lisa as CEO and her support team, Ben and Gwendoline. This team put a huge amount of effort and passion into our VIPs and all those impacted with a new serious injury. They also work hard to keep communication flowing with our key stakeholders, sponsors and the gaming trusts that provide us with such important funding. We pay tribute to and sincerely thank all of you. Maurice Trapp CHAIRMAN

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER’S REPORT

I would like to begin by acknowledging our VIPs and their families. I am grateful for their energy, inspiration, mateship, and support. Two years down the track I feel like I learn from each of them so often. They gave us the drive to get through last year which was pretty challenging fundraising wise and more specifically, on the field of play. The Rugby Foundation partners 101 VIPs. This includes 87 VIPs in chairs, nine walking tetras, one leg amputee, two with the use of one arm only, two with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and one with locked-in syndrome. Our most senior is 68 years old, having been in his chair for 48 years; the youngest was injured in 2011 and turned 18 in December 2013. People I have visited at home and/ or have met face to face

72

Those I know well by email and phone.

15

Those I have not met and who have not responded to outreach.

14

My goal is to have visited every single VIP by the end of this year. On the field… Whilst we are delighted that we have no new VIPs on our books, we were however kept extremely occupied with near miss incidents. These players are cognisant of how lucky they are to fall so exquisitely well on the right side of the ledger …a few millimeters either way might have seen very different outcomes. There are still two major surgeries to occur. Given there are some 150 000 players registered who play some 30 weekends of the year we’re thankful for this perspective of randomness in these accidents. Young Jarrod Evans was injured in May. I remember hopping in my car and driving to meet him and his lovely partner Kate at Waikato Hospital. Little did I know what was coming in the next few months. Congratulations to these players and their team mates, Mums, Dads, Partners, siblings and kids, with how they have coped at the scenes and with rehab and recovery. An aspect that was most surprising is that when we reached out to these players and their families, not even one of them knew of the New Zealand Rugby Foundation. We have a lot of work to do in profile building! Following is a list of the players who are walking around either with steel rods in the spine, a titanium eye socket and even a metal plate in the head. Some of them might well need to remember a letter of explanation when passing through airport security. Respect and credit to the surgeons who performed such outstanding work on these players.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER’S REPORT

We were greatly saddened by the tragic loss of Willie Halaifonua. On Saturday 20 July Takapuna were playing Massey in a keenly contested match. A seemingly innocuous knock to Willie’s head caused acute subdural haemorrhage. He passed away peacefully surrounded by his friends and family on Tuesday 23 July. We have worked closely with Willie’s partner Turea and have set up the Viliami Alamoni Halaifonua Trust. On Saturday 12 April the inaugural Viliami Alamoni Halaifonua Trophy will be played for between his club Takapuna and Massey. The clubs have set this up as an annual match to pay respect to their team mate. Huge thanks to all of the rugby supporters who collectively donated $70 000.00 to the trust fund. We particularly acknowledge the generosity of all those who organised and attended the Takapuna Fundraising Dinner, the Massey Luncheon and the Carbine Club Luncheon. These funds, coupled with the All Player Insurance pay-out from AIG affords some solace to know that there is a solid framework in place to manage and care for Turea and in particular the late Willie and Turea’s children, Julius and Leila. Off the field... We’ve had a busy and productive year. Here are some milestones of 2013: • A refreshed Strategic Plan, thus refining our core focus, what we do and what we don’t do. The Board as a group worked through some pertinent questions; Why is the Rugby Foundation here? What is it that we will focus on? How will we do that? Who will we partner with? This diagram summarises the outcome;

Enabling Life’s Opportunities

Resource and / $$$ SUPPORT PREVENTION ADVOCACY RELATIONSHIPS (Built on a foundation of) OUR LEGACY

Our business is the welfare of all community and non-professional1 rugby players in New Zealand. • During this session it was agreed that an updated Constitution was essential.

This includes a Finance2 manual and related policies as a framework in which to operate.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER’S REPORT

• Implementing a Records Management upgrade; this includes secure and confidential individual management system for all VIPs. (Hard copy and soft copy). • Implementing a standard Trust Deed document for VIPs which stipulates that the Rugby Foundation has to approve the makeup of the Trustees and has the right to appoint a representative if it so wishes. This is to ensure the security of focus of the Trust Deed always remaining on the beneficiary i.e. the VIP only. Super active VIPs... In April we hosted a Strategic Workshop for New Zealand Wheel Chair Rugby. This has assisted them in redefining their purpose as they quest to qualify for Rio 2016. “New Zealand Wheelchair Rugby – providing a home for inspiration, participation and excellence” • It is important to note that this is not just about the elite athletes but as much those who want to play for fun, mateship and fitness. We donated three new rugby wheelchairs to the newly formed Dunedin team to assist with growth from the bottom up. • In June we facilitated this piece of work. Co-Captain of the Wheel Blacks Gavin Ralton (not a rugby injury) secured the 6m x 2m billboard free of charge. We managed to get Cory Jane to take part in the fun with Gavin. New Zealand Rugby’s ad agency Augusto came to the party with a massively reduced production fee. We love being able to assist with shifting perceptions!

• A  number of our VIPs have done extremely well on the international stage in cycling, shooting and kayaking. One of our VIPs, Neil Cudby, accompanied Catriona Williams in a massive fundraising effort to hand-cycle to Mt Everest base camp. • A number of our VIPs have excelled in the pursuit of their painting. • T  he opening of the new deck at the Auckland Otara Spinal Unit was inaugurated at the AGM last year. This was paid for by the Rugby Foundation and the NZ Spinal Trust. The deck is great! Large and ramped down to the garden to afford easy access thus creating an outdoor private space for patients. • Ben has steered the website to quite some considerable growth. This is so important in raising our profile.   Visits Unique Page Views

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER’S REPORT

Referrals to our site from Social Media channels have increased 492% and accounts for over 65% of all visits. Essentially what the table on the previous page shows is that our driving mechanisms and awareness campaigns to get people to the site are working really well. The goal? Acquire, retain, add value, monetize… the big challenge. • W  e have made steady progress on the membership/database list. This is a major focus for 2014 – to grow our donor base. It is now “clean” and up to date. Now it’s time to grow. Income... has been disappointing. We have not showed as much of a profit as we planned to events wise. Once again, some events could not be proceeded with due to an over-crowded fundraising event market. To some extent this was a resource problem, as the near miss issues kept us very occupied and afforded me less time to focus on income streams as well as the management of our systems. Having this year employed Gwendoline Rewcastle as our Executive Assistant will rectify this and I know will free Ben and I up meaningfully. We would like to acknowledge the incredible continued support from many stalwart supporters: • The Centurions in Wellington hosted yet another sterling Friday afternoon luncheon prior to the Bledisloe. Nick Farr-Jones was his inimitable charming self. The irrepressible Mike Copeland played his as usual excellent MC role. • The Carbine Club hosted their annual luncheon and we were once again named the recipient. Phil Gifford did a marvellous job as MC. Grant Fox and Mel Robinson shared the stage just before the Super Rugby Final and the announcement of the first 2013 All Black squad. What a privilege to listen to the banter of such astute rugby minds. • The Hamilton Harlequins once again generously donated funds as a result of the dinner prior to the Argentinian Test. Ambassador Fernando Daniel Escalona was the guest speaker. • Our own Rugby Foundation annual luncheon occurred before the Springbok match in September. Ian McIntosh was joined on stage with BG Williams and Sir Colin Meads. Our grateful thanks to Cory Jane for adding such humour and insight. The ever-wonderful Tony Veitch who continues to do such great work for us. This event is ably managed by The Experience Group and we are indebted to Warren and Pippa for their dedication to our cause. • The Barbarians welcomed us into their very lovely club at Eden Park post lunch for a Pre-Test gathering. • The many many individual donors who give so very generously at events and also directly into our bank account. Special thanks also to the Infinity Foundation. Their support truly enables us to focus on our core work. We would also like to acknowledge the North and South Trust, Pelorus Trust and the Four Winds Foundation Limited. Continued support from Panasonic, Lion Nathan, Matua Valley and adidas is much appreciated. In conclusion I would like to take the opportunity to thank my colleagues Ben Sturmfels, Angela Davies as well as Gwendoline Rewcastle who has recently joined our team. I would also like to acknowledge Valerie Joy Smith who has so proficiently managed minute-taking at Board Meetings and AGMs for seven years. She is stepping down from this role due to ill health. Thanks for the support and team work. We would simply be unable to provide the assistance for our VIPs without the grant that we receive from New Zealand Rugby. I would also like to acknowledge the many dedicated staff members who assist us in a myriad of ways.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER’S REPORT

To our Chairman Maurice Trapp and President Sir John Graham and the current Board of Trustees, thank you for the leadership and sage advice. Thank you for the development and growth opportunities you afford me. DJ and Richie, this is not goodbye, as I know I can still call on you to visit VIPs and also lend a firm hand when I require your astute words of guidance. On behalf of the VIPs may I salute you both for the incredible years of service. Lisa Kingi Chief Executive Officer

AUDITOR’S REPORT TREASURER’S REPORT

2013 was quite a hard year financially as the Foundation discovered like other similar organisations that fundraising events were becoming harder to arrange and to achieve success at. While the end result for the year was still a reasonable surplus, there was less events and activities income than had been budgeted and there was quite a demand for funding of our VIP’s needs. Our investments provided reasonable returns once again (though less than 2012) and while some of that was non cash in terms of unrealised growth in market values, it did make the end balance sheet quite healthy. Given that meeting the needs for grants is a first priority over retention of income for growth in Capital Funds, the results for the year are somewhat tight. The result and end position is still reasonable, if not quite as good as was hoped. Lisa and her team along with the Board will be prioritising various items qualifying for grants in 2014. We must record very grateful thanks to New Zealand Rugby for increasing their grant to the Foundation by $50,000 per year from 2014. Another priority for 2014 will be to balance income and grants so as to continue to future proof the Foundation’s capital base and still be able to meet the prioritised needs of VIPs.

 

Main points from 2013 were: • Investment Income was down by $33,396, somewhat offset by an increase of $14,769 over 2012 unrealised value growth. • Non-Investment Operating Income was fairly flat against 2012, though Events Income was down, offset by Gaming Grants being up. • On the other hand Operating Expenses were up by $39,000. • Overall Net Income before Grants was $445,000 against $510,000 in 2012. • Grants made totalled $404,021 against $219,520 in 2012. • Bottom line surplus after Grants was $41,000 against $291,000 in 2012.

 

Overall the Foundation’s financial position remains healthy with some work required to tweak the operation slightly. Lisa and her team along with Accountant Angela Davies do an excellent job in looking after the Foundation Finances, and with astute Investment expertise from J B Were and good Financial Governance from my fellow Board Members/ Trustees the future for the organisation is sound. Mark Peters Treasurer

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS for year ended 31 December 2013

NOTE 1: STATEMENT OF ACCOUNTING POLICIES Reporting Entity New Zealand Rugby Foundation Inc is incorporated under the Incorporated Societies Act 1908 and the Charities Act 2005. The Foundations Charities Commission number is CC42547, and it is also a registered Donee Organisation with the Inland Revenue Department. The financial statements of New Zealand Rugby Foundation Inc have been prepared in accordance with New Zealand generally accepted accounting principles. Measurement Base The accounting principles recognised as appropriate for the measurement and reporting of earnings and financial position on a historical cost basis are followed. Specific Accounting Policies The following specific accounting policies which materially affect the measurement of earnings and financial position have been applied. Revenue received from sponsorship, grants and donations are accounted for on a cash basis because the general nature of this income is not certain until it is received. Grants received during the year, which are required to be applied for a specific purpose, are recognised as revenue when the Foundation has applied the funds for that specific purpose. Revenue received from professional fundraisers is accounted for on a net basis as the Foundation does not incur nor is liable for the expenditure. Sponsorship in Kind – The Foundation receives donated items for auction and events, but the value is not certain until the sale, therefore the revenue is recognised when the item is sold. Accounts receivable are stated at their estimated realisable value. Equities investments are fair valued at current market rates, fixed interest investments are carried at cost. All balances within these financial statements are stated in New Zealand dollars. Merchandising Stock is stated at the lower of cost, determined on a first-in first-out basis, and net realisable value. All owned items of Furniture and Equipment are initially recorded at cost, and depreciated as outlined below. Office Furniture and Equipment

11.4% - 60% DV

Website

60% DV

Where an item of furniture or equipment is disposed of, the gain or loss is recognised in the statement of financial performance and is calculated as the difference between the net sale price and the carrying value of the asset. The financial statements have been prepared on a Goods and Services Tax (GST) exclusive basis, except for receivables and payables that are stated inclusive of GST. New Zealand Rugby Foundation Inc qualifies for differential reporting as it is not publicly accountable and it is not large as defined in the framework for differential reporting. New Zealand Rugby Foundation Inc has taken advantage of all differential reporting exemptions available to it. SUPPORTING OUR SERIOUSLY INJURED PLAYERS

During 2009 the Trustees introduced a revised Statement of Investment Principles (SIPO) to guide them in their investment decisions. The SIPO gives the Trustees discretion to invest in equities. On advice from JB Were they elected to do so in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. It is the Foundation’s policy to record all equity investments at their current market value. This is considered the most appropriate valuation method given the risk associated with this investment. Therefore, the Foundation must record any variance between the purchase cost of the equities and the relative value of the equities at balance date. Market and Exchange Rate Variance in Equities at year end: $131,193 (2012: $116,424).

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR’S REPORT To the Trustees of New Zealand Rugby Foundation Incorporated Report on the Financial Statements We have audited the financial statements of New Zealand Rugby Foundation Incorporated on pages 14 to 24, which comprise the statement of financial position as at 31 December 2013, the statement of financial performance, and statement of movements in accumulated funds for the year then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information. Trustee’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements The trustees are responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice in New Zealand; and for such internal control as the trustees determine is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. Auditor’s Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (New Zealand). Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgement, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates, as well as evaluating the presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Other than in our capacity as auditor we have no relationship with, or interests in, the foundation.
