The Macrossan & Amiet Charitable Foundation has now distributed $632,823.62 to local charities since its inception and has grown to hold over $1.1M in capital. One of the most pleasing aspects of the Foundation is that all of the income is available for distribution each year, as all administration costs are met by Macrossan & Amiet Solicitors. We are also grateful to SH Tait & Co who undertake the Foundation’s accounting and audit services on a pro bono basis.
