Prime Four 
Community Trust

Background

The Prime Four Community Trust established by Drum Property Group, and administered by Foundation Scotland, is Prime Fournow open for applications. Applications can be accepted from charitable and not-for-profit organisations for a range of activities that will benefit the Kingswells community. Grants of up to £2,000 are available via the programme and applications can be submitted at any time with decisions being taken throughout the year. Note that the maximum award of £2,000 will only be granted in exceptional circumstances where the project will make a significant difference to the wider Kingswells community.

Aim

The Prime Four Community Trust programme can support a wide range of projects that will be of benefit to the Kingswells community. This may include, but is not limited to, support for projects that seek to:

  • Enhance the local environment e.g. floral displays

  • Encourage participation in sporting activities e.g. sports clubs

  • Improve physical and mental well-being e.g. lunch clubs for the elderly

  • Provide opportunities for young people to learn new skills and develop their potential e.g. Mother and Toddler groups, uniformed groups

  • Foster community spirit e.g. Gala Days

Exclusions

The Prime Four Community Trust programme cannot accept applications from:

  • Individuals

  • For profit organisations

  • Statutory bodies or activities that would normally be a statutory responsibility. For example, schools are unable to apply but the Parent Teacher Council associated with the school may be eligible to apply provided that the project will benefit the wider community.

  • Projects which will involve trips overseas

  • Projects which openly promote particular religious beliefs. Note that churches are eligible to apply for projects that will benefit the wider community.

How to Apply

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.

If you would like to discuss your project before making an application for funds then please contact Sian on 0141 341 4967.
