Looking to the future

Looking to the future

The economic downturn and its aftermath made 2010 a tough year. However, our Benevolent Fund has weathered the storm.

We’re confident that we’re now financially well placed for both today and tomrorrow.

Our prudence over the last few years helped us fulfil all long and medium term commitments.
As a result of the continuing success of the 550th Appeal, plans for further scholarships, bursaries and related support have successfully moved forward.

Looking ahead, the Court has agreed to cap future giving at a level that will both help the Benevolent Fund grow in real terms and let us maintain and hopefully even increase the amount we’re able to give every year. We’ve applied this formula for the first time to the 2011 / 2012 financial year’s budget.
