From BBC Scotland:

 

Hearts will not face face financial ruin should their relegation from the Scottish Premiership prove final.

The Tynecastle club were relegated from the Scottish Premiership on Monday after the season was ended early.

But they continue to consult clubs over their plan for league reconstruction with a view to avoiding demotion.

In the past week, there have been over 600 new pledges through Foundation of Hearts, while the club continue to have the backing of their benefactors.

Modern journalism at its laziest - just copy & paste from a fans forum.

 

Can someone please start a thread about FoH having been scammed by a fake Nigerian prince, and all the money is gone ? 🧐

Can we get some clarification on the 300/600 new members thing?

From what I can gather (read somewhere earlier) 300 new pledgers plus around 300 regular pledgers increasing their amount.  I believe to increase your dd you need to cancel your old direct debit and add your new amount so, it would be 600 NEW direct debits (300 newbies and 300 increased).....not 100% itk and happy to be corrected.

Pathetic, isn’t it? With the exception of Tom English the BBC sport journalism is hopeless.

 

By the way, well played all new/increased pledgers!

Thanks. Think that must be it. 👍

 

On a bit of a tangent, I’m not so sure about the cancelling the DD thing though. I think when I upped mine I just did it on the website, and chose a new amount. Don’t think I’m paying the two different amounts. Does the previous DD not stop automatically? I read someone saying that you have to contact your bank and cancel the DD. I don’t think that’s the case.

 

Hope that makes sense. Reading it back, it’s a bit messy! :lol:

Have as much as I can in a Hearts emergency fund ring fenced for a one off payment in case needed (don't tell the wife). We didn't go through all that under Romanov to let things slip now, especially when it's not our own club's fault this time.

Well done to all the new pledgers and those that have increased their current pledges. Once again the Hearts fans rise to the challenge. HHGH ❤️

 

One day we'll get proper credit in the media or even recognition from the people running Scottish football for it. By one day I mean never of course.

I have increased my own pledge a few times using this process. You do not loose anything. If you can....encourage friends/family to join and work with our benefactors to build up our contingency plan.

Thanks chaps. That clears it up. I just did it through the website and then checked the wee section about your pledge. It showed that my pledge had changed to the new amount and I never thought anything else about it. Must have these same emails sitting somewhere, but I hardly ever check my personal emails these days.

You definitely need to cancel

the old DD mate. I increased my pledge a few months ago and didn’t cancel the old one. I don’t realise I was paying two and discovered this when checking the bank for something else. It’s the only DD I’ve never failed to ask for a refund for though lol. I’m happy it was double payments for a few months 🇱🇻

Cool, cheers SJ, I’ll probably leave it a month then, and treat it as an extra one of payment. 👍

Yes the new amount comes off on the day you increase but the old one still comes off on the very day you set up your first pledge.  It’s not foolproof but in this case I was happy to let it run a few months before cancelling the old one. I think mine was the 5th and 9th of the month before I realised.

Would be a cracking idea.  Even a couple of quids worth of pocket money each month with the benefit of them seeing their name associated with something would attract a fair whack of subscriptions.

I copied the FOH tweet and sent it to a few mates. On the back of this, one has started pledging again and another has set up a new pledge for his baby son.

Foundation of Hearts chairman Stuart Wallace has paid tribute to the supporters’ overwhelming response since football was halted, insisting: ‘Something special is happening’.
Since the SPFL suspended the game on March 13 due to the world health crisis, some 700 fans have either started new monthly pledges or increased their existing direct debits.
That includes around 400 transactions since the SPFL made the decision to curtail the Premiership and officially demote Hearts from the Premiership last Monday.
Wallace has been bowled over by the response of the legends in the stands, particularly given the uncertainty of the financial climate.
Stuart said: “The numbers are staggering. We’ve been blown away by it all and it is quite humbling to be perfectly honest. To be able to do that and support the club is fantastic.
“All we ever say to people is, ‘just pledge what you can afford’, that is the important message. Pledge what you can afford, but it’s clear something special is happening amongst the fans base.
“What we said at the outset was that we cannot expect to be unaffected by this, people would be put on furlough, some people may lose their jobs and certainly there would be a question over peoples’ financial situation. We expected we might take a bit of a dunt like everyone else.
“We’ve put the odd tweet out but we’ve not gone cap in hand to the supporters.
“It’s clear something very special is happening here. It feels like the fans are looking for somewhere to rally and the place they have chosen to rally behind, again, is the Foundation of the Hearts.
“Every month we’re passing over the thick end of £125,000 to the club, how many professional clubs in Scotland have that income stream right now? I don’t know but my suggestion is one.
“We actually got an uptake at the start so were able to pass on more money to the club in the previous month.
“My Foundation email is constant with people trying to reactive a pledge or start a pledge, whatever it might be.
“On the flip side, someone asked me how many had cancelled but with the amount of emails I’ve had that way, I could probably count them on both hands.”
While the pandemic has led to the postponement of current Hearts owner Ann Budge handing over her majority shareholding to the Foundation, Wallace also believes the incredible uptake in pledges is recognition that the supporters believe in the vision set out by the FoH.
Wallace added: “It has been massive validation for us in terms of what we stand for at the FoH.
“None of us saw this coming, the last thing we expected as we moved towards fans ownership was having to deal with what is effectively a world wide financial crash again.
“But the fans have rallied and it is clear that they fundamentally are buying into what we’re trying to do.
“We have board meetings over Zoom these days and Ann said in the last one, ‘Stuart’s about to tell you all about something special that is happening over at the Foundation of Hearts’. It’s great to hear that.”

if given the go ahead I’m setting one up for my  granddaughter ( she’s 3 next month )

think there will be a lot of uptake with this.
