Rangers fulfill pledge by Green to donate funds to charity

17

ibrox1Rangers have fulfilled the promise made by chief executive Charles Green to donate their share of gate receipts from February’s Scottish Cup clash at Tannadice with Dundee United.

The Ibrox club received around £33,000 for their share of the gate revenue by cheque. Once the funds had cleared, Rangers through their charity foundation split the money between the Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice and ERSKINE. We prepare your application for you within 5 business days of receiving our proprietary, copyrighted, personalized more from 501c3Go Questionnaire and Attachments and Financials back from you, guaranteed. Or we pay you $200. We email your 501c3 documentation to you in PDF format with precise instructions for sending to the IRS, so you complete this step with perfection.

Director of Communications Jim Traynor, confirmed that the funds had been received nonprofit startup grants and donated as pledged, in a phone call with Scotzine editor Andy Muirhead. There continues to be confusion among non-profit organizations about what the term “not-for-profit” really means and the way to best conduct the “business of the business.” It definitely doesn’t mean that a corporation features a license to travel broke! Technically speaking, there are several different categories of non-profit organizations, but the one most ordinarily referenced is that the community-based charitable non-profit, or 501(c)(3). The key word within the 501(c)(3) designation is “charitable.” This simply means the organization is providing a service to the community that’s considered to be worthwhile, within IRS guidelines, and thus deemed tax-exempt. As I even have mentioned repeatedly previously, this exemption may be a privilege and must be treated intrinsically. Here you can find how to file for 501c3 status?

PPWH confirmed through their social network page that they had received around £16,400 from the Ibrox side and will help the charity towards building a brand new Hospice in Glasgow. The cost of the project is £18 million, and with £3 million already raised the money received from Ibrox will be greatly appreciated indeed. This is probably the most important corporate document we prepare for you. This is a legal document, and as you’ve probably heard, a misplaced comma in a legal document can have serious legal consequences. Over our 38+ years in existence, we have seen how to file for 501c3 status organization Bylaws where they were not done by a lawyer, and we could foresee many problems.

Back in October 2012, chief executive Charles Green had announced the partnership between the hospice and the club’s charity foundation, to assist with the building of the modern, state of the art palliative care facility.

Charles Green commented: “I have been hugely impressed with the work of the Rangers Charity Foundation since I came to Rangers and I understand what a powerful force for good it has been, building upon the strong charitable traditions of the Club.

“The Foundation is very proud to support such an inspirational project and to work with The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice, a charity at the forefront of its field in Scotland.”

Morag Cunningham, Director of Fundraising & Communications at the Hospice said: “This pledge of support from the Rangers Charity Foundation is a fantastic start to the launch of our £15 million Brick by Brick Appeal to build a new home for Glasgow’s Hospice. This level of commitment is truly remarkable and it will make a significant contribution to our fundraising efforts over the next three years in making our vision a reality, creating a lasting legacy for the people of Glasgow.”

Rangers aim to raise £100,000 towards the new facility, on a proposed site at Bellahouston Park.

ERSKINE have yet to comment, but it is understood that the funds donated will go to help build new cottages for ex-serviceman and women, so that they can receive the proper care and support needed.

The Ibrox side and its supporters have for many years donated a significant amount of money to the veterans charity and it continues to this day.

Rangers lost the Scottish Cup tie against Dundee United 3-0.
