Making a difference throughout Scotland
We help people and organisations to fund good causes, strengthening Scotland’s communities and creating a lasting impact.
Since 1996, we’ve helped distribute more than £170 million to charities and community groups across Scotland, creating happier, fairer, and more sustainable communities.
We support philanthropists to help their personal giving make the most difference. We work with donors to invest in community action that enables people and places to flourish. We work alongside communities to ensure that local funds are distributed by communities themselves. And we offer social investment opportunities to enable social enterprises, community organisations and charities to grow and deliver positive social impact.
