Pursuant to Section 36 of the Charitable Trusts Act 1957
Take notice that on 4 September 2008 at 10.00am, counsel for the University of Otago will move the High Court at Dunedin for an order approving a variation to the mode of administration of the charitable funds listed in the Schedule to this notice.
The application is being made on the grounds that the administration of the funds will be facilitated by the proposed variation, which is considered to be in the best interests of the charitable purposes of each of the funds.
The proposed scheme will authorise the University of Otago to transfer each of the funds to the trustees of the University of Otago Foundation Trust to be held and managed by them under the administrative provisions of that trust, except to the extent those terms may be inconsistent with existing terms, in which case the existing terms shall continue to apply.
The trustees of the University of Otago Foundation Trust
are all either officers of, or are appointed by, the university council.
Any person desiring to oppose the application must give written notice of his or her intention to do so to:
(a) the Registrar of the High Court, Private Bag 1925, Dunedin;
(b) the University of Otago, c/o Gallaway Cook Allan, PO Box 143, Dunedin; and
(c) to the Attorney-General, Crown Law Office, PO Box 5012, Wellington
not less than seven clear days before 4 September 2008.
