The Killie Trust was established in 2003 to give fans more of a voice in decision-making at Kilmarnock Football Club. Over that time the Trust has become an important voice in the running of the club and has recently launched Trust In Killie, an initiative designed to bring fans together to put a supporter on the board of the club.
By taking pledges from Kilmarnock fans right around the world, we are looking to raise £100,000 to buy unallocated shares in Killie and get our seat on the board. From there a fan-elected representative will take their place on the board as a full and equal director.
Through membership from the supporters of Kilmarnock FC, we will aim to provide direct and indirect influence over the running of the football club, ensuring the opinions of the supporters are considered before decisions are made by the board of directors at the club.
We will create and develop a working relationship with the people and organisations responsible for the day to day running & long term planning of Kilmarnock Football Club.
The need to continue to strengthen the bonds of our relationship with the club and interests of Ayrshire can only benefit the needs of all concerned. The Trust will also strive to benefit present and future members of the community by promotion, encouragement and furthering the sport of football in Ayrshire. In the long term, this also includes helping to further the sport at our national and international level.
The Trust will also encourage Kilmarnock FC to take proper account of the interests and safety of its supporters and the community in which the club serves when decisions of such matters are made.
At all times, the Trust will respect the rights of all members of the community served by the club and will strive to provide information to the people of Ayrshire and conduct the Trust affairs in accessible and appropriate ways.
