As promised, this is a statement of the latest financial position regarding the fund raising for the Patrick Cryne flag.
Both PayPal and Crowd Funding take a significant commission from the amounts. For PayPal it's 3.4% (which is why I can't believe how many people use it!) and for Crowd Funding it's 6%. I'm not totally sure how this commission is deducted, so the figures below are estimates until we get a full breakdown.
Anyway, here goes: -
Total value donated on Crowd Funding = £1051.00
PayPal commission 3.4% taken off donations = £35.73
Net Crowd Fund value = £1051.00 - £35.73 = £1015.27
Crowd Funding commission 6% = £60.92
Net funds to be returned to us = £1015.27 - £60.92 = £954.35
Direct donations (Brush, Anon, Lepton Red, me) = £140.00
Latest fund value = £954.35 + £140.00 = £1094.35
Flag cost already paid = £1054.80
Surplus as at 15th November 2016 = £1094.35 - £1054.80 = £39.55
One more poster, Robledo, has pledged a donation but for some reason he can't get my PM. If anyone knows him could they "prod" him. If anyone else wants to make a donation please email me firstname.lastname@example.org for the bank account details.
The final surplus will be donated to a charity of our choice. I suggest we leave that until the date of the Forest match, 25th November, to give more time for a few stragglers to donate.
Thank you to everyone for a magnificent effort!
