Legacy Committee Chair

| August 21, 2020

The RSGB Legacy Fund, thanks to the generosity of donors, has resources available to encourage and develop amateur radio. The Legacy Committee (a Subcommittee of the RSGB Board) considers proposals for grants to be given to projects from the RSGB Legacy Fund. The criteria for the award of grants was established some years ago and forms the basis of the decision process.

The RSGB is seeking someone preferably with experience of grant applications or experience within the charitable sector to Chair the Legacy Committee.

The number of applications for grants from this sizeable fund has been low recently and the Chair, once appointed, will oversee further communications about the availability of the funds and to encourage more applications. The Terms of Reference for the Legacy Committee is due for review and will be one of the tasks of the new Chair.

Legacy Fund applications are made using a standard form and are considered independently in a timely manner by the Committee members. If discussions are necessary then these take place by teleconference in pursuit of a consensus and a report is presented to the Board for its consideration.

You find out more about the Legacy Committee on the RSGB website.
