Members of the public wishing to contribute to the construction of the Argyle International Airport can now do so through a Contributory Fund set up at the National Commercial Bank.
The fund called the Argyle International Airport Contributory Fund was launched here on Wednesday July 8th 2009, at the NIS conference room. It is being managed by a board of trustees in the persons of His Excellency the Governor General Sir Frederick Ballantyne, Mr. Christian Martin CMG, Mr. Sid Hazel and the Hon. Brian Alexander.
The idea to set up the fund came about from numerous queries by Vincentians at home and abroad as to how they can become personally involved in the construction of the airport which they see as necessary for the continued development of the country.
All Persons contributing to the fund would be given a certificate of recognition, while those contributing one thousand dollars or more would be given a tax exemption.
The account number for the Argyle International Airport Contributory Fund is 200884.
Persons in the diaspora who wish to contribute to the fund can do so directly through the National Commercial Bank, Bedford Street, Kingstown. Account number 200884. Or they may send it by wire transfer. For Wire Transfer Details see the PDF link below.
