FUNDING UPDATE MAY 2020

Despite being unable to provide emergency financial support through the COVID-19 outbreak the Trust continues to achieve our objective of supporting small community groups and charities across Scotland. We have been able to work remotely and have achieved our published awards May deadline by providing much needed financial support to a further 14 groups with grants totalling almost £100,000. This takes our charitable giving to almost £2.4million since we launched in 2013.

We are also working flexibly with a number of our grantees offering a range of support such as listening to their immediate priorities and extending reporting timelines.

We are also working towards our next round of awards.   Our online application is currently open with a closing date of 5.00pm on 28th August 2020.

As our offices are currently closed all enquiries should be sent to enquiries@weircharitabletrust.com
