As advised to members in mid 2017, the General Committee prefers that the renovation to be funded via voluntary donations, which if made through the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF), will be tax-deductible for the donor.
The estimated cost of the full renovation project, including contingencies and on-costs, is in the region of $2.6-2.7m if undertaken concurrently, depending on the start date.
It should be noted that this includes the estimated cost of the remediation of the clubhouse walls, windows and roof, which can and will be funded out of the club’s existing financial resources.
The Fundraising Committee was established to help raise the necessary funds. It has been in regular contact with members (via a mixture of mail, email, newsletters, donation forms in the Club, the Club website, information sessions and some phone calls) to request donations since the renovation project was first approved in May 2017. To date, over $900,000 in donations & firm pledges have been received for this project. All members are encouraged to continue to take advantage of the tax-deductible nature of donations which can either be made through the Club’s secure project page on the ASF website, or paid directly to the Club.
All payments made directly to the Club will require the Donation Form to be completed, signed and returned. The Club will then forwarded your donation to the ASF, and a receipt will subsequently be issued to you from the ASF. On the donation form, you have the choice of donating via direct debit, credit card or cheque. If paying by cheque, please make payable to RPEYC Future Development Fund. If you wish to pay using direct deposit, the Club account details are as follows:
National Australia Bank
Account number: 249614622
Account Name: RPEYC Future Development Fund
If paying by direct deposit it is essential that you include your name and initials as a reference, and forward a copy of the lodgement receipt to Secretary@rpeyc.com.au so that a receipt can be provided accordingly.
All members are encouraged to donate so the clubhouse can offer both current and future generations of members with the facilities to take the Royal Prince Edward Yacht Club into its second century and beyond.
