The main objective of all the events we arrange is to enable members to meet and spend time with people who have similar interests. The social side of our activities is perhaps the most rewarding.
All our activities are reported in a lively quarterly magazine, published on this website's Members' Pages and/or sent to members in March, June, September and December.
WE HAVE A LONG HISTORY IN YORK
For over forty years the York Association of the National Trust (YANT) has been a welcome focus for people from in and around York, organising a wide range of year-round events.
WHAT HAPPENS TO OUR SURPLUS FUNDS
We are a "not for profit" organisation, so any funds we have over at the end of the year, we donate to National Trust properties especially those in Yorkshire such as Treasurer’s House, Beningbrough Hall, Nunnington Hall, Fountains Abbey, Nostell Priory and East Riddlesden Hall.
We also contribute to many special appeals including those relating to specific areas of country or coastline. In recent years members of the York Association have been able to hand over cheques for around £8,000 a year to help fund NT projects.
