The 50/50 Club, one of our most important fundraising projects and open to everyone (not simply to Friends), is a subscription scheme which builds a prize fund to be drawn quarterly, 50% of the fund being used as prize money and the other 50% being added to the Friends’ funds to support Kirkcaldy Galleries.
Members are entitled to purchase as many weekly shares as they wish at £1 per share per week. These must be paid by Standing Order in advance (i.e. £13 per quarter) on the first day of each quarter (i.e. 1st September, 1st December, 1st March and 1st June). Initially a commitment to 4 draws is required. There is no limit to the number of shares which a member may purchase. Membership is confirmed on receipt by the Friends’ bank of the first payment. The new member will be eligible for inclusion in the next draw and thereafter.
The quarterly draw is made by a member of the staff of Kirkcaldy Galleries in the presence of the Chairman (or a nominated deputy) and a committee member. The winner is notified within one week of the draw taking place and a cheque is included in the letter. Winners’ names are displayed on the Friends’ notice board in the Galleries and noted in the Newsletter. The amount of prize money varies but currently is around £200.
