On behalf of the Trust Board, I would like to give you an update on our 'Trust In Killie' fundraising campaign finances for the three month period, January to March 2022.
During this period, thanks to the continuing generosity of subscribers during these challenging financial times, we have realised an outstanding total of £22,222.08.
Helping us achieve this overall sum was a fantastic additional contribution of £350 from one of our members, Trena Campbell, as a result of her creative endeavours making and selling KillieKakes, taking our current balance at the end of March to £60,162.26
We are always looking at potential future projects suitable for 'TiK' money, which will benefit both Club & our supporters.
Please continue to send us your thoughts by email to - [email protected]
Once again, we would sincerely like to thank all members and subscribers for your continued and very much valued support.
Together we ARE stronger!
With very best wishes from the Trust Board.

On behalf of the Trust Board, I would like to give you an update on our 'Trust In Killie' fundraising campaign finances for the period, November and December 2021.
During this period, thanks to the continuing generosity of subscribers, we have realised another outstanding total of £14,887.70.
Helping us achieve this overall sum were additional contributions, via our collection cans, from the following local businesses -
• Burns Inn, Kilmarnock (£60),
• Pete's Store, Dreghorn (£50)
Our sincere thanks go to all customers and staff who are contributing in this fashion. It is genuinely appreciated.
If you would like a collection can for your business premises to help support this campaign, please email us at - [email protected].
As a result of all these payments, our balance at the end of December is £95,940.18.
From this, £18,000 has been transferred for our second year partnership with the KFC Academy, with their new season just having started.
With covid restrictions again affecting cashflow and, to offset soaring material costs for our wheelchair viewing platform, we are investing an additional £40,000 in our Club at this financially crucial time when we are also trying to compete in the transfer market.
This will leave our 'TiK' campaign with a total of £37,940.18 to carry forward into the New Year, with a view to funding future supporter-led projects.
Once again, we would sincerely like to thank all members and subscribers for your continued and much valued support.
Together we ARE stronger!
With very best wishes from the Trust Board.
Subscriber Total - 395 | Entry Level - 121 | Standard - 184 | Plus - 79 | Other - 9
Monthly Subscriptions - £6,361 | Phase Two banked so far - £86,208
In Brief: Since our last financial update, we’ve raised another £20,000 which, by our estimates, will mean that the current total should approximately cover costs for the completion of the rail seating and wheelchair viewing platform projects. A fantastic achievement once again by all of our subscribers. There has been a regular monthly drop off of subscribers recently but that isn’t unusual at this time of year. It’s good to report that a number of people who had previously cancelled their monthly mandates have returned to our campaign and we are working on a strategy to encourage more Killie fans to join this initiative. The Trust Board would like to thank one and all for the valued contributions to our campaign. Every single pound is making a real difference to the Club. Every pound also secures a KFC share, held by the Trust for our members. When the rail seating and wheelchair viewing platform invoices have been received and paid, we will become the Club’s third largest shareholder.
Project Updates: The good news is that the Rail Seating has been delivered to Rugby Park. The Club are currently working with the architects and East Ayrshire Council, from a safety testing perspective, and with the installers to arrange a mutually suitable date to get these areas in place, avoiding the players training times of course. Our fingers are crossed that we’ll all have something to sing about at our home game against Hearts. There’d be a kind of symmetry if that were to happen as our TiK campaign was launched at our home game against Hearts in April 2017. The wheelchair viewing platform plans are currently with council departments and architects who are working together to ensure that all the criteria is met, with the ambition of work beginning in early 2020.
TiK Phase 3: It’s time to turn our attention to projects new. Since the inception of TiK, all of our projects have required long term funding to reach our targets. Whilst we will continue to look at longer term issues, the Trust Board feel it is time to devote a smaller percentage of the monthly total towards funding schemes that can be completed within 2/3 months, allowing subscribers the opportunity to vote more regularly on where they think funding should be targeted. With all of this in mind, we’d like to hear your ideas on what you think ‘Trust in Killie’ should be tackling next (projects large or small) for the benefit of the Club and our supporters. We will also liaise with the various departments of the football club to establish what they believe the priorities to be then we can all make an informed choice via a vote. Please email your ideas/thoughts to [email protected].

Monthly Subscriptions - £6,223 | Phase Two banked so far - £66,022
Our last update, which included the opportunity for Trust members and TiK subscribers to take up a space in the new safe standing area in the East Stand at Rugby Park, saw a real resurgence in subscribers to our campaign. For a variety of reasons, there is a regular monthly drop off of subscribers but we're delighted to report that its always more than balanced by new people signing up to the campaign.
TRIAL SAFE STANDING SECTION
We’ve been informed by the Rail Seating company, Ferco Seating Systems, that our order arrives into Grangemouth on the 24th of September so it’s hoped to get these installed shortly after our home game against Ross County on Saturday 28th September.
NEW DISABLED FACILITIES
The £41k accessible viewing platform proposals allow for 20 users plus their companions. Our architects have prepared a full set of technical drawings and submitted this to East Ayrshire Council for assessment against the technical standards. This assessment is ongoing with a number of questions raised in relation to the Green guide which is more stringent regulations that stadiums require to adhere to. The Architects are currently in the process of addressing these and a building warrant application will be submitted thereafter.

Over £50k in the bank. Another fantastic landmark achieved by those subscribing to our TIK campaign. This sum will eventually be converted into shares in our Club for Trust members, giving us a 250k stake and the 3rd biggest shareholding. As a result of this investment, a new wheelchair platform will be built very soon in the Moffat Stand seeing the welcome demise of the old ‘dugout’ style construction, provi
