De Oude Weg
Registering an NPO
Registration is fairly straightforward, and will be the first item that we will attempt to complete, as the other steps require it!
To register the De Oude Weg neighbourhood watch as an NPO we will need the following documents:
  • A founding document/constitution
  • A deed of trust (a written agreement used by trusts)
  • The memorandum and articles of association (which set out the mission of our NPO and monitors its growth)
The easiest way to get the founding documents written is to look at other existing examples.
The Oranjezicht constitution is a good sample to use. I have uploaded it here - http://deoudeweg.co.za/pdf/Neighbourhood Watch Sample Constitution.pdf. It looks like a simple search and replace should suffice.
Another option is the Kommetjie NHW constitution. This one is a little more formal - http://deoudeweg.co.za/pdf/CONSTITUTION_KNW_2_Feb_20_2008.pdf
Once we decide on a constitution, and memorandum, we can appoint people to serve in the organization, and then proceed to registering as an NPO.
