ScotRail Employee Charitable

Giving Fund


ScotRail is connecting Scotland - delivering door-step to destination solutions and enhancing the connection between people and communities. As employers, they recognise the critical role that employees play in delivering that vision. 


The £10,000 ScotRail Employee Charitable Support Fund contributes towards employee fundraising efforts for the causes that matter to them by matching fundraising up to £250. 

Making A Difference

The Employee Charitable Support Fund is underlined by ScotRail’s 5 Pillars of Corporate Giving which are Good Health and Wellbeing; Quality Education; Sustainable Cities and Communities; Life on Land, and Celebrate Rail.
Matched funding will be available to support charities that:

  • Promote positive mental health and wellbeing; and/or

  • Target improvements in literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing in primary schools; and/or

  • Aim to improve the community’s environmental impact at a local level, encourage recycling or upcycling, or run environmental information or outreach programmes; and/or

  • Work to help reduce the loss of biodiversity, or protect and prevent the extinction of threatened species; and/or

  • Celebrate rail through the arts and local activity programmes.
