Foundation Scotland offers a diverse range of funding programmes for organisations working to benefit a range of communities across Scotland. 

Some of these programme are Scotland wide and some are restricted to particular sectors and/or geographies.  Each programme has its own criteria and/or outcomes.

We distribute the funds on behalf of companies, individuals and charitable trusts.

We are also a leading provider of community benefit funds in Scotland.

PRIME FOUR COMMUNITY TRUST

Applications should be submitted in the form of a letter detailing what the grant is needed for, how much the project will cost and how much is being requested, why the project is needed and what difference it will make to the Kingswells community. Each letter of application should also contain the contact details of your organisation (email and telephone details essential). All applicants to the fund should have a bank account as a general rule. Where this is not the case then any grant award may be paid to a local organisation e.g. the Community Council who will accept the grant on your behalf. 

All applications must be accompanied by a copy of your organisation’s governing document and your most recent set of annual accounts. If you are a very informal group that does not have a governing document and/or annual accounts then you can still apply to the programme for funds and additional checks will be made about the status of your organisation during the assessment process.

Email applications to sian@foundationscotland.org.uk or send  Sian Langdon, Foundation Scotland, 131 West Nile Street, Glasgow, G1 2RX.
