T in the Park 2016 Community Fund Opens

12 October 2016

Bringing Communities Together through Music

Foundation Scotland is delighted to announce application details for the T in the Park 2016 Community Trust Fund, set up to benefit the eight community council areas around Strathallan Castle Estate, Perthshire – home of the music festival.

A total of £12,500 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.

This year the application process will be through the Express Grants programme at Foundation Scotland, operating on a rolling basis. The fund will open from 12th October, with no set deadlines. Applications will be assessed on a regular basis with awards being made for up to a year or until the fund has been distributed.

Following the 2015 festival, Foundation Scotland managed the distribution of £19,000 to local community groups and charities around Strathallan Castle. Foundation Scotland has worked with DF Concerts since 2007, managing the £385,450 they contributed to the Kinross-shire Fund from the previous event site at Balado.

Geoff Ellis, Festival Director of T in the Park said “By working with Foundation Scotland once again, there’s a fair and transparent process in place, and we look forward to seeing the positive impact the 2016 fund will have on the local community.

“We will also continue to support our chosen charities further afield which include Rachel House (CHAS), Teenage Cancer Trust, Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy and Strummerville.”

Giles Ruck CEO Foundation Scotland said “We have worked with DF Concerts for almost 10 years and we are delighted to continue our partnership into 2017. By choosing Foundation Scotland to manage the funds, DF Concerts can be confidents the fund will have lasting impact in the communities around Strathallan.”
