Grant Programmes

We support services and projects run by Scottish-based community groups and charities. The Trust will fund community groups and registered charities but not governing bodies or commercial ventures, including business start-ups, nor can it sponsor if you are undertaking an event to raise money for a charity. 

  

We will disperse grants on a biannual/quarterly basis, although applications will be accepted any time. There is no set format, but we encourage your proposal to cover:

  • How the project or service supports one or more of our funding themes 

  • Overall funding required

  • How much are you applying for

  • Why do you need the grant

  • How will it be spent

  • What will the grant be used for

  • Who will it help and how

  • What type of issues will be addressed

  • How will you know you are making a difference if you achieve the funding
