I’ve no idea wtf they’re all about at times. If they’ve only raised 24k then just thank everyone for the contributions so far and set a new target. 
 

Actually boasting that 24k is a huge boost to the playing budget is hilarious. Wonder what big name they’ll bring in on £24k a year?

They'll enjoy twisting the narrative that they've managed to "out raise" us by £9k this month.

 

Freaks.

Agreed.  And if only we'd stolen another £15 poppy money during the month it would have been a round £138,000.

 

I privately thought the monthly total might have slumped to around £70,000 as a result of this virus.  Would never have posted that on here though.  Too negative to contemplate.

 

Instead of that, it's doubled.  Struggling to take that in.

Doug, a fair bit of it probably comes from the siege mentality of the fans just now because of the way we are being treated. I would have expected to have seen a drop in the number of we were not demoted and were safe

Hardly when we've raised nearly 138k

QUESTION.....

 

If we continue to raise around £1.4 million annually, how long would it take us to make a realistic offer for Hibs...?

I wrote a rather long and depressing post on another thread about how I have fallen out of love with football, because of the SPFL and Doncaster, Dundee Utd & Co but, just to be clear that I haven't fallen out of love with Hearts, I have upped my monthly DD to FoH.

 

Only Hearts!

I've never cancelled or suspended my levy to the foundation from day one.

I know we all have to "cut our cloth" etc regarding how much we can afford but I set the amount, (and to be fair), it's not a huge amount, but not high enough to have the wife nagging me. I think most fans see the deduction as a utility payment now and don't miss it.

Yeah, I'm just getting at some would either not read our total properly. Or would, and still try and spin it. As in: "15k extra isn't all that much"... etc, etc.

Since coming out of debt I've increased my FOH sub twice. It's not a huge amount due to high living costs, but, it's still a regular donation which I've been paying since day 1.

Too many people being almost apologetic for only giving what they can afford. Every single person who donates is a ****ing genuine Hearts legend. That phrase gets tossed around a lot, but FoH saved our football club. It’s a bloody great thing.

I am proud to say, my donation is big enough to upset the wife every month but

 

she knows her place,  I’ve been married to the present mrs for 20 years,

They should advertise more. Cheap marketing like emails or leaflets. Maybe a bit more subtle than asking for an extra fiver.

My friends and I added an extra £51 to FOH on top of our monthly contributions to get it up them. I renewed my platinum season ticket because I bleed maroon. It doesn't matter if I don't get the normal number of games. If my club gets a chance to f$ck over these b'stards that tried to do us down, that will be my reward.

My two sons, 19 and 24 recently joined. Like me for them it is for life. I have moved two season tickets tfrom Gorgie Road to platinum for next season even though I may not get to all the games. I am lucky I can...I get that! I also bleed maroon. Both my grandfathers and my father were Hearts through and through. its the right thing to do. Note...........FofH is for life not just when we are playing well or needing help and it is certainly not for threatening the club with...'I will stop my contribution unless you ......'

Amazing effort from our wonderful contributors. I would have thought that given the amount of one off payments and people upping their subs it would have been higher than around 15000 more. Regardless we should all be proud of ourselves. Well done everyone.

Stuart Wallace emailed me and asked me to pass this on. 

 

 

The Foundation of Hearts board has watched the thread develop on kickback about the most recent monthly pledges.
 
In truth I have not checked to see how accurate the figure quoted on kickback is, but one thing is certain, directionally it is correct. We have seen an absolute surge in total monies collected and the number of members actively pledging. 
 
Last month we were able to pass a record sum to the club, which is quite incredible against the backdrop of the CoronaVirus and the impact on peoples personal financial position. Our fans really have stepped up again - that should be no surprise to us I guess. I absolutely expect we will beat that amount next month and hand over yet another record amount of cash. Our membership is now likely at its highest level since the early days at Foundation of Hearts when the club was exiting administration. I really do hope the members take great pride form what they are achieving.
 
You will be aware we refer to our members as 'Legends in the Stands', never has that been more accurate than right now.
 
I thought I would drop you a note and ask (if you feel able) to cut and paste this into the thread on kickback. The board at Foundation of Hearts really would like to express our gratitude to the supporters, it has been absolutely humbling to watch this happen. In turn, when we explained the position to Ann, she asked that we express her thanks to all members, the club has been blown away by this too.

I retired last year, so pared back my contribution, but with the situation we find our club in, I went back onto the FOH site earlier this month to bump my contribution back up.  I also decided to make a one-off payment of £100, to get me a bit closer to the 2006 club.  Things went a bit tits up, and it looked like my payment had failed so I tried again.  Then I got two acknowledgements, both payments had gone through.  I thought, **** it, it was meant to be.

 

I'm also one of those who will be making one off payments to FOH instead of forking out for away games this coming season, whichever league we end up in (only boycotting away games to the wanks, not the good guys, but would be helpful if someone can produce a definitive list of who is who).

I remember a while back there was some chat about creating the possibility of texting donations to FoH, I have no idea of the technical issues involved in setting this up, but I still think this would be a great idea if possible.  We could raise a fair bit of extra dosh on a match day, especially if we actually start winning games again.

What a cool thread this is. 

Proud to be on the FOH jerey and a 1956 member. Proud to be a Jambo. Bought my eldest son a training top tonight. Another £42 towards the club. We've just got to keep it going. R. Rovers and DU are coming after us. We need to be able to defend ourselves. We didn't ask for this situation but blood does not show on a maroon jersey.

It is. Although, in our current situation, the money generated monthly is absolutely critical. Surely it is playing a part in keeping staff in jobs.
