Association of the Friends of the French Hospital
About The Friends of La Providence
The Association of "Friends of La Providence" has for over forty years, been seeking to raise funds, allocated at the discretion of the Management Committee, for the benefit of La Providence with special reference to the improvement of amenities for the residents. The Association also serves as a link between the charity's well-wishers on the one side and its directors and residents on the other. Friends with Huguenot descent can also keep in touch thereby with one of the major Huguenot charities remaining in this country.
Membership Subscription Rates
Membership is open to all subscribing not less than £10 per annum to The French Hospital although we recommend a figure of £15 to non-pensioners, with Life Membership available for a payment of £150. All members will receive an annual report and an invitation to the celebration of the Anniversary of the Foundation in June each year, as well as to such other occasions as may be organised for them.
Method of Paying Subscriptions
Annual subscriptions can be paid by Banker's Order or by cheque. If you pay UK income and/or capital gains tax please also complete the Gift Aid Declaration form. This will allow The French Hospital to reclaim 25p for every £1 donated. The Gift Aid procedure replaces the former Deed of Covenant.
Additionally, older or retired people who may feel unable to make donations from current income or capital may like to make provision in their wills for a legacy to The French Hospital. A husband and wife can, moreover, stipulate that the legacy will accrue to The French Hospital only after the death of the survivor. Similar provision can, of course, be made in both wills.
