While I'm not involved with organising the foundation now I'm still a keen member, donating every month since the start.

I wonder if the club could push it a bit more, especially during feelgood moments like after the Hearts win or the equaliser vs Killie. 

It's an important extra income stream for the club and if even another 200 members paid £10 pm that's another £24,000 pa.

Incidently a friend who donates £20 pm says he's broken the £750 barrier so is entitled to hozzy for 2 so anyone else who donates this amount should also be due the same. I think I should be due it too.

Joined this during Covid to help the club. Came out in March-22 after the Mcghee debacle.

Communication was good at the start then became pretty non exsistent. Club should be looking to relaunch this and look at what other clubs do, think Aberdeen have a good one. 
 

Problem we have is Nelms/club don’t readily communicate with the general supporter base, this being a prime example and now over 3 years old.

We could look at how the other clubs do it and take some ideas for our foundation. We could definitely push it a big more.

As some have argued ours in not a Foundation, its just a donation to club coffers. We have no targeted uses for our money, like the wee stand at Gussie Park or e ticketing or anything frabric to the club. It just helps run the club, pay the bills and salaries.

I know some who wont join because of that.

I don't understand that pov tbh. It all goes towards the budget whatever it pays for.

It goes toward John Nelms' salary and that's why many fans just won't contribute. It should be targeted at something that directly benefits fans. Getting rid of the swamp at the back of The Coxy would've been a decent first project to benefit.

But other clubs Foundations agree specific projects to be funded and are duly acknowledged like the DSA on the new team coach. It does matter as it’s recognition of fans efforts
