The Macrossan & Amiet Charitable Foundation has now distributed $855,332.00 to local charities and not-for-profit organisations since its inception. The Foundation operates as a public ancillary fund. Donations to the Foundation are tax deductable. One of the most pleasing aspects of the Foundation is that all of the funds donated are applied for charitable purposes, 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 2022. For more information regarding the foundation or to downloaded an application for funding, visit our website.
