On a quarterly basis the donation amount will be donated to the Community Foundations to be held as part of the Newcastle Building Society Community Fund. The donation amount will be calculated quarterly by taking the balance invested into all Newcastle Building Society Community Saver accounts at the end of each of the three months, adding the balance together, dividing by 3 to calculate the average balance, multiplying this amount by 0.10% and dividing the total by 4 as it’s a quarterly donation.
For example if the balance at the end of January was £250,000, February £275,000 and March £300,000 then the average balance in quarter 1 would be £275,000; the Society will then donate £68.75.
Any estimate of the likely amount to be donated by the Society to the Community Foundation in the course of the next year will depend on the amount invested in accounts opened as part of the Newcastle Building Society Community Saver Account scheme. Based on an estimated investment total in Community Saver accounts of £25 million in the first year, it is estimated that the total donation of £25,000 would be made in the first year.
The donation amount will be fixed until 23rd August 2019. On or after 23rd August 2019 the donation amount will fall to 0.0%.
