Our Grants

Our Grants

We provide around £3m in grants every year to charities working in Scotland. The Trust will consider applications for:

  • revenue or capital costs
  • project funding or core funding
  • one off awards (small and main grants)
  • multi-year awards for up to 3 years (main grants only)
Small Grants

There is no deadline for our small grants programme, and you can apply for up to £15,000 at any time of year.   We do not normally consider multi-year applications under this programme.  The programme typically makes awards to support both:

  • Running costs for small, community based initiatives (often which are volunteer led) and
  • One-off pieces of work which can help develop a charity, such as the purchase of equipment/infrastructure; the development of partnership work or service evaluation.

We are happy to discuss your idea before you apply.  The request should still fit within one of our funding themes.
