DISCLOSURE:  All donations to the Society's Property Fund shall be used for the exclusive purpose of acquiring or maintaining real property (i.e., real estate), that will in whole, in part, or can potentially provide for a Clan Strachan Heritage Centre in Scotland; or other educational venue to protect or display historical relicts, heraldry, history, genealogy, lands, or other compatible aim. The Property Fund may provide for the acquisition or maintenance of other lands and real property that will be used in whole or in part for charitable, educational, and scientific purposes to promote the history, traditions, and heritage of the local Scottish culture, and to encourage the collection and preservation of records, traditions, and historical material.  The Society may donate said funds to the Clan Strachan Charitable Trust, authorized by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR), to effect the acquisition purposes in Scotland (SC044937). An agreement is on file confirming the Trust will use said funds compatible with the mutual aims and objectives of the Society and Trust, and for purposes of this restricted fund.

United States Residents: The Society does not provide tax advice.  Please, check with your tax professional as your donation may be tax deductible.   Because of bank charges, larger donations of £1,000 or more, please write a check payable to the Clan Strachan Scottish Heritage Society, Inc. in US Dollars (£amount x 1.5 = US Dollar equivalent) and mail to the attention of Jim Strachan, 30730 San Pasqual Road, Temecula, CA 92591 (USA).  The exchange rate is not moving in our favor, so the quicker you make your donation, the more favorable for the Clan. Thank you for your understanding.
