St Martins School Jubilee Trust
Objectives of the Jubilee Trust
The goal of the Jubilee Trust is to assist any project that will promote the learning and development of students at the school. These may include outdoor education activities, art, music, performing arts, sports & culture. It is intended to support school programs but not fund activities that are otherwise the responsibility of the school board of trustees. The trustees intend to make a distribution from the trust fund each year.
A small fund is currently being held based on the profits from the school jubilee held in 2006. This has been augmented by other donations and the trustees hope to add to the fund by:
- Receiving funds from legacies and lump-sum donations
- Annual pledges and regular payments
The trust has charitable status and will be registered with the Charities Commission. Any donations to the trust can qualify for a tax credit and there is now no limit to the donation tax rebate.
How the Jubilee Trust is Managed?
The trust fund is held by Trustees in accordance with the terms of a trust deed. The Trust operates independent of the school although the trustees were initially appointed by the school’s Board of Trustees. An annual report is filed with the Charities Commission and is available on the Commission’s website.
