The Friends of the Clan Maclean Heritage Trust
The Friends exists to support and help finance the work of the Clan Maclean Heritage Trust. It was founded in July 2001, to coincide with the 350th anniversary of the Battle of

Inverkeithing. Since then, over 200 people have become Friends, either as individuals or as family members. Most of the recent projects would not have been possible without the subscription of the Friends.
The annual subscription, which is for the calendar year, is £20 for an individual and £30 for a family (married couple or partners and children under the age of 21).
Membership of the Friends is not limited to members of Clan Maclean.
In order to become a Friend, please complete a Membership Application
. This may be completed on screen or down-loaded and completed by hand. The form incorporates a Gift Aid declaration and we should be grateful if all UK taxpayers could tick the relevant box. A Standing Order form also forms part of the Application form and again we should be grateful if Friends with UK bank accounts would agree to pay for renewals of their subscription by this means. See below for more on Gift Aid and Standing Orders.
Membership of the Friends also makes a delightful gift for Macleans and their children. Simply complete a Gift Membership
form and make payment as described below.
The Trust benefits considerably if Friends who pay tax in the UK complete a Gift Aid declaration, which increases the value of the subscription to the Trust by 25%. This costs members nothing, and higher rate taxpayers may reclaim part of their subscription through their Self Assessment tax return. A Gift Aid declaration is included in the Membership Application form. A separate form for this purpose is also available here

It would be most helpful if Friends with UK bank accounts would kindly agree to pay for renewals of their subscriptions by standing order, as this reduces the administrative burden on both the Trust and themselves. It also reduces the expenses of the Trust where we have to use post, thus ensuring that more of your donations can be used for Trust projects.
A standing order form is included with the Membership Application form. It can also be down-loaded from here.
Standing orders are not suitable for Friends who do not have a UK bank account.
For those who do not wish or are not able to set up standing orders, renewal subscriptions can be paid via any of the payment mechanisms described above. If paying by cheque or via online banking, please also send us a completed Membership Renewal
form or Gift Membership Renewal
form as applicable, so that we can allocate the payment correctly.
