T IN THE PARK COMMUNITY FUND OPENS

25 September 2015

Bringing Communities together through music

Foundation Scotland is delighted to announce application details for the T in the Park Community Trust Fund, set up to benefit the eight community council areas around Strathallan Castle Estate, Perthshire – the new home of the iconic festival.

A total of £20,000 is available in the fund this year, which will solely benefit community groups and small local charities, who can apply for between £250 and £2000, and is generated from donations from T in the Park.

Applications are open from 25th September until 11th December 2015 with awards being made in March 2016. For full eligibility information and to apply, log onto www.foundationscotland.org.uk.

The T in the Park Community Fund aims to continue the festival’s successful legacy of supporting local causes - and will be an on-going commitment from festival organisers. Foundation Scotland has worked with DF Concerts since 2007, managing the £385,450 they contributed to the Kinross-shire Fund.

Over 50 organisations benefited from pre-school groups through to services targeted at the elderly and projects to improve the local environment. Several other large awards helped with capital costs to improve community buildings and monuments.

Geoff Ellis, Festival Director of T in the Park said “Local causes in Kinross-shire benefitted from the fund for 18 years, and when we announced the move to Strathallan, we wanted to ensure this continued. By working with Foundation Scotland, there’s a fair and transparent process, and we look forward to seeing the positive impact the fund has on the local community.

“We will also continue to support our chosen charities which include Rachel House, Strummerville and Nordoff Robbins.”

Giles Ruck CEO Foundation Scotland said “Following our previous relationship in working with DF Concerts to help deliver the Kinross-shire fund, Foundation Scotland is delighted to manage this new fund for T in the Park, and support the local communities around Strathallan Castle. T in the Park is committed to supporting the local organisations and I am sure this new fund will create a positive lasting legacy for the area, as it did in Kinross.”
