Geograph Announcements

Funds and accounts

At the meeting held on 21st March, the Annual Report and the Financial Statements for the year ended 31st December, 2016 were approved by the Trustees. The documents have been distributed to all company members.

The accounts show that the project suffered an excess of expenditure (in other words a loss) of £4,134 for the year. Donations received were £10,825 including Gift Aid.

Regular readers of the forum will recall that a contract was signed with Tiger Computing for them to take over the systems administration and I posted an appeal for donations in early December, 2016.

The response to the appeal has been heartening. From 1st December until 28th February another 21 donors have commenced making regular monthly donations – an extra £170 per month. 76 donors have made one-off donations amounting to £2,370. Gift Aid claimable on these donations will increase the figures.

At the meeting, the budget for 2017 was agreed. This shows a budgeted loss of some £5,500 based on donations receivable of £10,000.

So, once again I appeal for donations from all those who use the site. Please give generously to support this wonderful project.

Something that will raise funds for Geograph without costing anything is signing up to Give as You Live. Many on-line retailers and other service providers will donate a part of the sales receipts to your chosen charity. Click the ‘Donate Now’ button on the home page, follow the link to our Give as You Live page and sign up as a shopper.

Another way to support the project is to leave some money to Geograph in your will. Simply add the phrase ‘I give to Geograph Project Ltd, whose Registered Office is at 49, Station Road, Polegate, East Sussex, BN26 6EA, the sum of £…….’ to your will.

Newsletter 8

The Geograph trustees are pleased to present the latest edition of their newsletter (company members will receive it as an email attachment). We continue to focus our efforts in three areas – financial security, technical resilience and education/outreach.

It seems only a short while ago that we were gathering in Peterborough for the AGM. May I remind you that this year we shall be meeting in Bristol on Monday 26th June, at the Holiday Inn, Bond Street. It is open to all and I hope as many members as possible can find the time to join us; they are most enjoyable occasions. More details will follow.

As always please feel free to contact the trustees at any time via trustees@geograph.org.uk
