Pars Supporters Trust
The Dunfermline Athletic Supporters` Society Limited (Pars Supporters’ Trust) was established in 2004 and will celebrate its 10th anniversary in season 2014/15. Its vision is to focus the support and passion for the Pars through the PST to influence the key issues affecting the common goals of Dunfermline Athletic supporters and the surrounding community.
Its purpose is that the profit for all will be watching the Pars going from strength to strength by aiding the development of local, future talent from within our community and surrounding areas.
Its aim is to unite all Pars supporters across the generations on a common platform to develop and deliver our support for the maximum benefit of our Club and the Communities in which we live by providing both financial and volunteering support.
The Pars Supporters` Trust is a `not for profit` organisation. Since 2013, PST has provided supporters not only with a platform to achieve the acquisition of Dunfermline Athletic F.C. by Pars United CIC, but also to support the Club through Administration with various donations and fund raising initiatives, and the Pars supporters through the PST administered ‘Buy the Pars’ campaignhave become the single largest shareholder in the football club, a feat achieved by raising over £200,000 in just 9 months, together with a network of over 800 members, one of the largest of any Supporters` Trusts movement in Scotland.
The PST Board are elected by its members and, within the ten strong Board, has a diverse team with backgrounds in local government through to senior leadership & project/financial management in FTSE 100 companies ensuring a succession of strong leadership and capability that can benefit DAFC now and in the future. Two Pars United CIC Board member positions are held by the PST. These positions are currently occupied by Gordon Milne and Drew Main. The Pars Supporters` Trust is also represented by Margaret Ross on the Board of DAFC.
The Pars Supporters` Trust is an open and engaging organisation that welcomes new members who, for a minimum of £20 per annum, gain a vote which, through its AGM, can directly influence DAFC. PST members can also attend the Pars United CIC AGM and are the only fans organisation to have an increasing shareholding in OUR Club.
