Who can apply for a grant?

Community groups and small charities, based in Scotland and providing services in Scotland, who are struggling to secure funds through mainstream funders or who have unsuccessfully explored all the statutory sources of funding.

You may be new or established but must also meet one of the criteria in Qualifying Category (see How to apply ) and be seeking funding of less than £25,000. That doesn’t necessarily guarantee funding, but it means that Trustees will consider your application. Awards are made at their discretion and their decision is final.  You must also be able to demonstrate the benefit a grant from the Trust will bring to the people or community you serve.
