Thanks in advance 

Proposed Dundee Football Club Historical Trust

February 2019, a small Steering Group of Dundee FC supporters met with the intention of forming a Dundee Football Club Historical Trust.

 After many stimulating meetings throughout 2019 and into this year and in discussions with the Dundee Football Club Board the Steering Group has successfully secured an agreement to operate independently from the Football Club but with the full backing, support and blessing of the Club. 

 Established on a voluntary basis by a group of supporters, the proposed Historical Trust is now well advanced with the application process for securing charitable status and anticipates that all necessary approvals will be in place well before the end of 2020.   

 The proposed Trust will be an extremely proactive organisation that works to preserve, celebrate and share the rich heritage of Dundee Football Club and the memories of its players, management and supporters.

 The Trust will be responsible for raising revenue to implement current and future projects, community events and memorabilia purchases. As a result, contributions from fans, other individuals and organisations, whether via memorabilia loaned or donated, or financial support will be greatly appreciated to ensure that current and future projects can be realised and the history of the Football Club safely preserved as a legacy for future generations.

 The Trust will acquire, preserve, maintain and exhibit artefacts, records and memorabilia of a historical, cultural and personal nature connected with the history and activities of Dundee Football Club, its players, officials, employees and supporters, and to make the same available for public access and educational purposes at the discretion of the Trustees.

 The Trust is also in the process of designing and preparing to launch a dedicated website for the purpose of displaying artefacts, records and memorabilia. The Trust will also organise and run events aimed at promoting its activities and raising funds to help with the development of the organisation. The Trust also aims to organise and host exhibitions and lectures for the interest and education of supporters of Dundee Football Club and the wider community.

 Finally, the Steering Group is delighted to confirm that the process of gathering memorabilia, artefacts and documents is already well advanced and if anyone wishes to add to the collection by donation or by loan and receive acknowledgement for doing so please contact by email to [email protected] to discuss the opportunity.

I know some of the lads involved in setting this up,   they are all good Dees and as genuine and loyal supporters as you could get.  I know a lot of time and effort has been spent in getting this up and running and i wish them every success in this going forward.

All the best lads, F.

Sorry for the delay in replying.

Many thanks for the good wishes, much appreciated. We have had great support from The Scottish Football Museum and The Hibernian Historical Trust and taken onboard their advice regarding storage and insurance issues. At the moment we are building up a database of historical items and securely storing the physical items that have been donated/loaned. 

Regarding a permanent museum, this is the objective for the future, as we are in the very early stages of a long term project.

Regards

Good afternoon fellow Dark Blues,

 
Just an update on the Dundee Football Club Historical Trust, we are pleased to announce that we have now received our Charity status confirmed by OSCR, the regulation body in Scotland. This now allows us to push forward, draw up all relevant policies and continue to develop the Historic Trust website which will be launched in the near future. 
Since the last update, the Historic Trust has been assisting the DFC in the Community Trust with their latest initiative “Dundee Together” by researching and transcribing articles to suit the Community Trusts needs.
The Historical Trust would also like to thank the DFCSS/Dee4Life for all the essential financial and administrative support provided and also the numerous number of Dundee FC memorabilia collectors for getting in touch and donating, and when the time is right, Indicating their wish to loan memorabilia to the Trust. 
Anyone who would like to know more or indeed like to loan or donate memorabilia please contact the Trust at: [email protected]

“Preserving the past, protecting the future” 
 
On behalf of:
The Dundee Football Club Historical Trust
