We read about economic struggles at home and abroad, famine around the world, poverty and health issues in our own backyard. While all these stories are real and represent significant challenges, there is also another side to our world. There are stories of altruism, unsung heroes, life-changing ideas and community-changing inspiration, supported by a helping hand and small amounts of money.

Where philanthropy meets community is a rewarding space in which we work. Each day we see these stories unfold and it is these stories we choose to share and celebrate at the Foundation. Inspiring giving has been our passion since 1996, when we started connecting philanthropists with exceptional charities, enterprises and community opportunities.

Last year, thanks to the generosity of our clients, we funded over 2200 projects. We reached all corners of Scotland through grassroots grant making. And we created impact in communities through major donations, investments and capital projects. Behind each grant there is a story and you will find lots of these on our website. We hope these will inspire you. Click on the button to find out more.
