Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The Culbokie Community Trust (CCT) was formally created on 30th June 2014. It is a company limited by guarantee which exists to serve the interests of the whole community. The community is defined by 29 post codes (see below) spanning the village and 2-3 Km beyond.
Around the end of 2011 a small group of residents, supported by the Ferintosh Community Council, conducted a community survey to find out what people think about Culbokie and how they would like to see it develop and improve.
An informal group called the Culbokie Development Group came together and started putting into action some of the smaller ideas that came from that consultation. This group has now evolved into the Culbokie Community Trust.
CCT’s founding documents list five purposes which must be exercised following the principles of sustainable development as follows:
Managing community land for the benefit of the community
Improving recreational facilities and activities
Advancing community development
Advancing community education about its environment, culture, heritage and history
Enhancing environmental protection
Why have a Trust?
Being a more formal group with the right governance structure means the CCT is in a stronger position to carry out bigger projects and is accountable to its membership.
Who runs the Trust?
CCT is currently being run by a Board of volunteer Directors. An Extraordinary General Meeting held on 2 December 2014 elected its first Board of Directors;
There is provision in our governing document for a maximum of 12 Directors.
CCT aspires to work with the many groups already providing excellent services and facilities in the village. It wishes to be a positive force for good, taking on projects that respond to community needs and working with all the different sections of the community for common cause
