  • General Fund
  • Equipment Fund
  • Senior Sabre Teams Fund

Most people choose to donate to the General Fund, which can be used for any purpose.

If you donate to the Equipment Fund your donations will be used solely for the provision of equipment for the use of fencers. The equipment will remain the property of The Sabre Club Charitable Foundation or of The Sabre Club, which is wholly owned by the foundation.

Donating to the Senior Sabre Teams Fund will direct your funds specifically to that cause.

All general admin expenses are applied against the general fund. These, including the cost of operating the bank account, are currently covered by donations from the trustees.

Gift Aid received is applied to the fund to which the underlying donations were made.
