SCHEDULES

Article 3.

SCHEDULE 1N.I.FORM OF RESOLUTION BY CHARITY TRUSTEES UNDER ARTICLE 3

IntroductoryN.I.

We are the trustees of the........................................................................................................................Charity, being a charity to which Article 3 of the Charities (Northern Ireland) Order 1987 applies.

We are of the opinion—

(a)that the objects of the charity may fairly be considered obsolete or lacking in usefulness, or impossible of achievement, having regard to the period that has elapsed since the charity was founded, the social and economic changes that have taken place in that period and other circumstances relevant to the functioning and administration of the charity, as follows

.................... ............................................................ ............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

.................... ............................................................ ............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

.................... ............................................................ ............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

(relevant circumstances, if any, to be specified) and

(b)that an alteration of the charity's objects, as set out in.................... ............................................................ ................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

(here specify the applicable trust instrument)

is required in order that the charity's resources may be applied to better effect, consistently with the spirit of the original gift.

*Delete any words or phrases not applicable.

Alternative objects, being in law charitable, are specified in the schedule to this resolution and are in our opinion not so far dissimilar in character to those of the original charitable gift that this modification of the charity's trusts would constitute an unjustifiable departure from the intentions of the founder of the charity or violate the spirit of the gift.

We have complied with Article 3(4) of the Charities (Northern Ireland) Order 1987.

ResolutionN.I.

We, the trustees of this charity, under and in pursuance of Article 3 of the Charities (Northern Ireland) Order 1987, hereby resolve that the trusts of the charity be modified by replacing the objects set out in the trust instrument by the alternative objects specified in the schedule.

Article 4.

SCHEDULE 2N.I.FORM OF RESOLUTION BY CHARITY TRUSTEES UNDER ARTICLE 4

IntroductoryN.I.

We are the trustees of the............................................................................................................................................Charity, of which the gross income in the preceding accounting period was £............................................................

We think it expedient that the whole property of the charity be transferred to another charity, to be held and applied for, and as property of, that other charity.

We have obtained from the trustees of the........................................................................................................................(here name proposed transferee charity), written confirmation that they are willing to accept a transfer of property under Article 4 of the Charities (Northern Ireland) Order 1987.

We have formed the opinion that the objects of the................................................................................Charity are not so far dissimilar in character to those of the original charitable gift that the proposed transfer would constitute an unjustifiable departure from the intentions of the founder of the........................................................................................................................Charity or violate the spirit of the gift.

We have complied with Article 4(3) of the Charities (Northern Ireland) Order 1987.

ResolutionN.I.

We, the trustees of the................................................................................Charity, under and in pursuance of Article 4 of the Charities (Northern Ireland) Order 1987, hereby resolve that the whole property of the charity, including its permanent endowment, be transferred to the....................................................................................................Charity.

Signed:

Article 5.

SCHEDULE 3N.I.FORM OF RESOLUTION BY CHARITY TRUSTEES UNDER ARTICLE 5

IntroductoryN.I.

We are the trustees of the....................................................................................................Charity.

The value of the charity's permanent endowment is £............................................................ (or thereabouts), and the endowment does not consist of or comprise land or any interest in land, and its gross income in the preceding accounting period was £............................................................

We are of the opinion that the property of the charity is too small, in relation to its objects, for any useful purpose to be achieved by the expenditure of income alone.

We have complied with Article 5(2) of the Charities (Northern Ireland) Order 1987.

ResolutionN.I.

We, the trustees of the said charity, under and in pursuance of Article 5 of the Charities (Northern Ireland) Order 1987, hereby resolve that the charity ought to be freed from any restrictions imposed by law with respect to expenditure of capital.
