The charitable objects of the The Paristamen CIO are
- The advancement of the Christian faith
- Any other charitable purpose not inconsistent with (1).
This means we can potentially support almost any type of charitable work, but see the grant-making pages for our priorities. We are a charitable incorporated organisation – registered charity in England and Wales no 1155665. We are also a registered charity in Scotland no SC048961.
For financial details, including our annual report and accounts, please see The Paristamen CIO entry on the Register of Charities maintained by the Charity Commission. Our annual report and accounts are prepared to 31 March each year and are generally filed with the Charity Commission in August/September. From 2019 we will also be filing our report and accounts with OSCR.
Sources of funds and affiliations. The charity does not have a permanent endowment, but makes grants from donations received. At present the charity has only a small number of donors although a legacy in 2014 increased our resources and enabled us to extend our grant-making considerably – see our news page for details. However, we are pleased to receive other donations which would enable us to extend our grant-making activity.
We are also active members of the Association of Charitable Foundations and are keen participants with the Scottish Grantmakers and we have also had significant involvement with the Yorkshire Grant Makers’ Forum.
We currently have three charity trustees:
- Professor Gareth G Morgan (Chair)
- Mrs Sharon L Morgan (Admin Trustee)
- Mr Peter Gorbert
Al three trustees have a wide range of interests in the voluntary sector. All grant-making decisions are taken by the three trustees together – trustees’ meetings generally take place three times a year in February, June and October.
