  • What’s the difference between a member, a participant and a beneficiary? 

    When we refer to your members, we are referring to them in the context of your sports associations’ legal status. Depending on your legal status and governing document, you may have members who make decisions relating to things such as making changes to your governing document, appointing and removing trustees and determining whether your sports association should be wound up. The trustees of your sports association will also be responsible for reporting to your members at your annual general meeting. Regardless of your legal status, it is essential to keep up to date membership records to ensure all matters of importance are voted on correctly, in line with your governing document.  

     Participants are exactly that; the individuals who take part in your chosen activity. Many sports associations will likely have different levels or categories for participation and the impact measurement of your sports association will likely be linked to your participation figures as well as your beneficiaries. Which leads us on to… 

     Beneficiaries. These are those who benefit from your charity, or those who your charity seeks to benefit. Understanding your beneficiaries is key to furthering your charitable objects and should be reported on by your trustees in their trustees annual return.
