View Full Version : The Hibernians - Monthly DD Scheme to back the club

I've read on here that a number of posters would 'definitely' use a monthly DD scheme to give funds to the club and I've also read that they don't like the idea of the Hibs Lotto as not every penny goes to the club.

So, fellow Hibbies I give you 'The Hibernians' which although has been set up for youth development it doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out that if this area is fully funded by fans then it frees up additional cash for the manager.

http://www.hibernianfc.co.uk/page/HYBS/0,,10290,00.html


If anyone from LWT or Hibs is reading this then let's get this on the front page on the main site, promote it and have a system where a DD can be set up electronically rather than downloading forms and posting.

We have individuals who are involved with The Hibernians as part of LWT already. Its in effect son of Club 86 and IS a great way to fund the next generation which not only gives us players to watch develop into the first team but also has and will provide the transfer fees that we as a club need to thrive in the current climate.

Also last two cup finals those who have been members have been given priority for tickets (no guarantee of this in future but club have recognised this important contribution thus far)

There have been discussions about doing some form of promotion for the scheme to raise awareness

Quick question, how easy is The Hibernians link to find on the www.hibernianfc.co.uk ? Answer is that it's almost impossible, if you know someone from Hibs then can you ask them to put a permanent visible link on the front page?

As someone above has said, if we could get an electronic system set up where people can complete the direct debit application online that would make it much easier, and is likely to increase the take up.

I don't see why we couldn't have something similar for a 'Manager's Fund' running at the same time though.

I think your missing the point about the lottery without taking away anything that you are doing in addition to this.

The lottery s a fantastic idea and was designed to capture two things:

1. Supporters who already play the lottery each week supporting other causes can switch to the hibs one. This being linked to the German lottery means that he prize fund is substantial. Arsenal already use the same scheme and it is successful.

2. Players who might not do the lottery but would like to contribute to the club and have a chance to
Win something substantial.

From what I understand the regularity of sales provide an income stream for the club from people who already play the lottery and can you imagine the Prize fund if we did it ourselves, it would not be worth doing as the take up and lapse ration could be significant. People in general are used to playing the lottery if they have the money to do so.

It's great to have schemes tht our neighbours an only dream about and I'm very proud of the contributions LWT as made to the club in addition to everything else our supporters do. One club, one team and one group of fantastic supporters!:thumbsup:

I think there is maybe a lack of understanding of the cost of setting up something like this (the point being made by some about lottery is the admin costs that don't go to Hibs) which with a low take up costs in hard cash and opportunity quite a lot. There are also the legal and regulatory stuff that comes with collecting info online.

These were some of the reasons that the Lottery was outsourced.


Just so its not missed...best way to support club...buy tickets for games..systems all in place all money (less vat) goes to club...fuller stadium helps team...

I don't want to deflect away from the main of the OP but i would like to understand why a system which FoH are using cannot be replicated for The Hibernians or a Managers Fund. Wouldn't Hibs be the third party and the merchant would be responsible for collecting the data and Hibs only interaction would be to receive the monthly credits?

I do use Hibs lottery but with only 26% going to the club I am seriously thinking of cancelling.

I think we all agree with that but there will be hundreds, if not thousands, of Hibs fans who for whatever reason can't make it to games. We should be making it as easy as possible for these fans to subscribe to schemes like this online. If the goons at FOH can do it surely the club can manage it as well?

Down the slope is spot on. Buying tickets for matches is the best way to support the club. These hundreds if not thousands of fans you talk about could surely buy one or many match tickets online. Its a simple thing to do.

I am along with others involved with promoting The Hibernians.

In my opinion it is one of the best ways all Hibernian fans can contribute to the prosperity and well being of the development of our Academy.

Surely it has got to be the main thrust of bringing through our "own grown" players with all that can bring to the betterment and development of our wonderful Club.

I have not been aware that it has been an issue for contributors finding it difficult to contribute easily. However, with that in mind, I will speak to Bill Hendry (the Academy Director) and Katrina McGregor/Russell Smith on Monday morning and try to get this sorted.

Cheers,
Rod.

I would personally like donations to a 'manager's fund' to
go directly to PF or if that is not feasible, Kicks for Kids instead.
IMHO the youth team is already catered for but by donating to KfK's
it's a win-win scenario. All monies raised by ST sales go
directly to PF and those who contribute are keeping alive
the Hibernian tradition of helping those less fortunate than
themselves. LWT are trying to find the best 'fit' for existing
schemes or indeed new initiatives but welcome feedback.
Anyone who is interested in contributing monthly then please
PM me as work is ongoing. Also, if anyone would like to
become more involved in LWT, please advise here or by PM.

That is just making it more difficult for people to contribute though, which was exactly my point above. Someone who lives/works a fair distance from Edinburgh is unlikely to go on to the Hibs website once a month to buy a ticket to a game they aren't going to attend. It's not just going to happen in any decent numbers.

If fans can quickly sign up for a monthly direct debit online for The Hibernian or a Managers Fund, we would without a doubt generate more income.

One of the things I've been looking into for LWT is a method where fans can pay monthly/by direct debit/anyway possible in fact :). It has to be cheap to administer/run correctly (not like our Gorgie chum's past efforts) & be in line with the club's ideals. There are a couple of possibilities in the pipeline just now ;)

But many individuals do buy (pay by 10 month scheme) for a ST in the full knowledge that they won't make all / many / any games - they do it to support their team.

Anyone can do this - the point im making is that there is a cost to every scheme set up that could be avoided if people just bought tickets / ST's (whether they can use them or not...or contribute to KFK......

We should have collection tins at the food kiosks etc, I bet folk would chuck some cash in from whatever change they get. Probably not a huge amount of cash but a very cheap and easy way for folk to contribute.

The amount of money raised would be very small so I doubt it would be worthwhile doing for the club's benefit.

However doing the same thing with the money going to a nominated local/Scottish charity each game would be a good piece of PR for the club.

Agree with this.

I think the Hibernians scheme should be the only direct debit scheme where as the Managers fund and Kicks for kids should be for donations for when your feeling a little flush that week/month you could donate some money to either of them schemes.

East Fife have a managers fund scheme so I don't think it can be that dear to administrate something like this.

FranckSuzy
23-06-2013, 11:44 AM
I would hope that people would contribute to whichever fund suits them best. The Hibernians scheme has existed for some time now and Hibs have since launched Kicks for Kicks and Hibs Lotto. They must feel the demand is there. IMHO, there is enough diversity in all schemes to cater for everyone.
At the end of the day, it's Hibs who win as they get all the funds, regardless of the route they are received through. GGTTH.

I don't disagree. It's just this thread which started with an appeal to donate to the Hibernians but moved off in other directions. All income to the club is good, nobody will argue with that.

I'm sure there are some people that do this, but the 10 month payment plan is only open to fans for a couple of months a year, and hasn't been available for a while now. The main options open to fans outside of this time are to pay 400 in a lump sum for a season ticket, which a lot of people can't afford to do, or log on to the site once a month from afar to buy a ticket for a game they aren't going to attend. If we had the option to sign up for a direct debit in 2/3 minutes and then have to do nothing after that it will increase our income. As someone else said if East Fife can manage it the admin costs can't be high.

All i'm saying is that in 2013 we should be able to sign up online for a direct debit for The Hibernians, or a Manager's Fund, or any other initiative. It can't be that hard.

Also agree with Matty that we should have bucket collections for youth development. We could get the youth team players to do the collections so wouldn't cost us anything.

Without taking anything away from fans who like doing the lottery, I think it's only fair to say that there are fans on here who would prefer to spend a fixed monthly sum where the whole amount goes to the managers fund and not just 26p from every pound. I don't doubt that the prize fund is substantial but so are the odds of winning - greater in fact than the UK national lottery.

I see what you're saying J but in truth the idea of a managers fund has been around a while, made no real progress and is now being pushed as a way for fans who wish to, paying directly into the managers fund. I don't see it affecting the Hibernians as those who have suggested they would pay into a managers fund, and there's a fair number who would apparently, would not and currently may not pay into the Hibernians.

I have to say, I'm struggling to understand why this idea is attracting negative responses. If we had a quid for every post on this site where 'better players wanted' was the topic we'd not need the managers fund :greengrin

Whilst not wishing to butt in on .net business, the thing with
KfK is that the money needs to be collected at the start of the
season for a full ST or Jan for a half ST. GGTTH.

LWT has been involved for a long time now DTS but progress has been slow to immobile due, no doubt, to priorities being given to other projects. I'm not sure that LWT, great job though it is doing, needs to be involved in every initiative - that would be a kinda closed shop. I'm pretty sure that the points you raise would be looked at and dealt with correctly should some fans outside of LWT choose to take this forward :agree:

I'm guessing that the club would happily work with any fans willing to create an income source :thumbsup:

I think it's all about giving folk a choice, to be fair.

If I had the disposable income for it not to matter, I'd happily donate to the Hibernians for youth development, and to the manager's fund for the first team. Someone who felt that it was important that the club brought through players has the option of the Hibernians, whereas someone who wants a better standard of player now can contribute to the manager's fund.

I'm all for choice, in fact I think the club should continue to look at ways of giving people a choice of how to give money.

You might wonder why said posters don't just join LWT and my guess would be that in doing so it might not have the desired effect in moving this forward more quickly than has been the case so far. In other words the LWT group as is has enough on its plate.

Just my thoughts

I think it's all about giving folk a choice, to be fair.

If I had the disposable income for it not to matter, I'd happily donate to the Hibernians for youth development, and to the manager's fund for the first team. Someone who felt that it was important that the club brought through players has the option of the Hibernians, whereas someone who wants a better standard of player now can contribute to the manager's fund.

I'm all for choice, in fact I think the club should continue to look at ways of giving people a choice of how to give money.

This.

Any ideas that result in a new income stream for Hibs should be encouraged :agree:

Why dont we merge the whole lot and put it into one pot , that way the Whole of Hibernian benefits .
A lot of us are up for this but dont know or cant decide where/what to donate to .
Looking at all the other teams struggling and we dont have to look far,surely any amount coming in is better than nothing
All donations to the pot could be spread out when and where its required that way everyone is taking care of , we can do this guys .
3000 fans donating 5 a month is surely achievable ,that gives Hibernian 180,000 a year we wouldnt have
A few funds already have the experience and accounts set up to deal with it so lets do it guys

Yeah I agree. Thats something I would be interested in. Even some sort of club donation page. I would happily give Hibs a fiver a month to boost the club but sometimes I would happily chuck in more, depends on my circumstances. The way I see the Hearts fans chucking in money and giving it to the club makes me want to do the same. Difference with them is they are putting it in to survive, we could be adding 1 or 2 top players to the club.

There are a couple of feasible ways to donate being looked at & Hibs are 'in the loop'. I'm back home tomorrow

There is no consensus - but a lot of diverse views, which is healthy and why we need to make sure effort goes into areas where maximum return can be gained for that effort (and cost) :aok:

The consensus I was referring to was people wanting to give Hibs their money ;)

I am along with others involved with promoting The Hibernians.

In my opinion it is one of the best ways all Hibernian fans can contribute to the prosperity and well being of the development of our Academy.

Surely it has got to be the main thrust of bringing through our "own grown" players with all that can bring to the betterment and development of our wonderful Club.

I have not been aware that it has been an issue for contributors finding it difficult to contribute easily. However, with that in mind, I will speak to Bill Hendry (the Academy Director) and Katrina McGregor/Russell Smith on Monday morning and try to get this sorted.

Cheers,
Rod.

Update:

Regarding the access to The Hibernians on the main Hibernian site, this will not change imminently, as the Club are hoping to introduce a new CRM system which, once installed, should hopefully alleviate some of the current access issues experienced by some.

Currently, details can be found in the "Our Club" and also the "Supporters Zone" buttons on the left hand side of the Official Hibernian FC site.

In the meantime, if you wish to join The Hibernians then please either use the link that Golden Bear uploaded:

http://www.hibernianfc.co.uk/staticFiles/1f/ab/0,,10290~174879,00.pdf and complete the details of your monthly donation amount, and the Direct Debit Mandate form.

Or, contact Katrina McGregor direct by email: [email protected] or, Tel: 0131 656 7090, and Katrina will help you in processing your monthly donation.

Once again, I hope many more of our fans do decide to sign up for this initiative as we within The Hibernians feel that this is one of the very best ways to support the development of our Youth Academy and, hopefully, in due course bring through "our own" home-grown talent to our first team.

Cheers,
Rod.

Hi Rod

Just wanted to say that The Hibernians is a fantastic set up and encourage folk to donate if they can.

I'm anxious that the proposed Managers Fund idea is not seen as some sort of competitor to The Hibernians. My thoughts are that fans willing to contribute to the club have a number of options to choose from and the Managers Fund is just one of them. It is being picked up as a goer because a number of fans feel they would like to contribute to the managers fund without those funds being diluted or diverted in any way.

I'm keen that all income streams are maximised as whether it be sooner or later it will help to put better players on the park.

I'm in for 20 a month :agree:....

An easy way to support the academy and as someone else said if the academy is self-sufficent through donations then this surely means more funds can be released into other areas...

I would also be interested in donating monthly to a direct "manager's fund" to supplement his avaialble transfer/wage pot.

The great thing is we're thinking of doing these things to help better our club and lift it upwards to a new level rather than scrambling about raising funds simply to keep it afloat in some sort of fire engine management strategy:agree:

I agree that all routes to maximise funding into Hibs should be encouraged. Everyone within the support who wish to additionally donate to Hibs will choose their preferred route. At the end of the day, as long as money is being fed into The Club from whatever source, then it can only be for the good one way or another. :agree:

Just a wee update for those who expressed an interest in donating to a Managers Fund......the bank account is now a work in progress, direct debits will be catered for and a PayPal account will follow shortly. I would hope it will be up and running by mid July but an official announcement will be made as soon as everything is in place. Hibs are on board too and have expressed their thanks to those who willing to donate.

What a daft post. It is not compulsory, it's a chance for fans to give some extra money to the club and Pat's transfer kitty, that way we can possibly increase the chance of signing some good players.

Amazed the club can't set up a 'contribution' page that allows people to set up a DD and allocate set percentages of that DD Into the various schemes....wouldn't seem like the hardest thing to do considering the off the shelf software that must be avail to do this.

A coordinated and club backed initiative would surely attract a substantial amount of backing.

Also think that this could be the focus of any other fund raising activities.....manager fund bake sales and the like ;-)

Hi folks,

Sorry, I have been away on holiday, and I did not spot this thread again until now.

It appears that in fact the attachment for the download for contributing to The Hibernians is missing within the new revamped site.

This is being resolved by the techies in the Club, and it should be back available - hopefully by tomorrow at latest.

I do hope that more people will contribute as all funds raised are solely for the use of Youth Development at East Mains.

Any other queries, etc., then just post again on here or, better still, PM me (in case I miss a post on the main hibs.net Forum), and I will do my best to help.

As I mentioned earlier please get in touch with me by PM, or, direct on the Main Messageboard if you have any queries, etc.

Cheers, Rod.

Hello Canongatehibs,

Thanks for your message.

Firstly, did you receive a copy of the update from Bill Hendry which was distributed by email on 29th July?

I ask because I would like to ascertain if you may have been missed off the distribution list. If so, I will arrange to send you a copy.

If you wish not to divulge your name and email address in the open forum, then please just send me a private message.

Secondly, over the past season there have been issues in processing the updates (which Bill alludes to in his update).

Now that Leeann Dempster has come on board there will be changes in the pipeline as to how the running of The Hibernians will function going forward.

I look forward to you getting back to me.

Regards, Rod.
