The Macrossan & Amiet Charitable Foundation has now distributed $708,255.82 to local charities since its inception and has grown to hold over $1.2M 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.
Applications for next year’s distribution can be submitted any time before 30 June 2020. For more information regarding the foundation or to downloaded an application for funding, visit our website.
