The Mac’s Hart Trust is a charity registered in England and Wales. Its purpose is to support partnership pubs raising money for their chosen charities. We provide support by improving financial accountability and tracking and by enabling reporting of the charitable benefit to donors. We can also top up funds raised.
Partnership pubs proposing to raise money for charity have the opportunity to request support from the Mac’s Hart Trust. At this time they may nominate a charity to benefit from their fundraising efforts (restricted funds). There is no cost for this support either to the partnership pub or the money it raises.
The trustees will consider, pursuant to the Donation & Nomination Assessment Policy, whether to provide support, acknowledging whether the partnership pub has nominated restricted funds. The Trustees will also consider whether, and to what extent, Mac’s Hart will top up funds raised. If the Mac’s Hart is unable to provide support and/or topping up the partnership pubs can continue fund raising dealing directly with the relevant charities.
“Funds accepted for the Mac’s Hart’s chosen destination charity will be topped up by £2 for every £10 received.”
Mac’s Hart topping up is £1 for every £10 raised. This is increased to £2 for every £10 raised where the nominated charity is our chosen charity. Topping up will prioritise nominated charities operating within the area below:
Administration expenses will, to the extent practicably possible, be borne directly by McMullen & Sons, Limited.
Where expenses, such as bank charges, have to be borne by the Macs Hart Trust, McMullen & Sons, Limited will put the charity in sufficient funds to cover these expenses. Therefore, any administration expenses shown in the accounts will be covered by funds expressly donated to the Charity for that purpose.
Limited unrestricted funds may be available. See Grant Making Process
