Stirling-wide Grants Programme 

Background

Foundation Scotland is currently seeking applications from charitable groups and organisations operating in the Stirling area.

Aim

To fund local projects providing services and activities that can help to address the following themes: 

  • Support for older people in retirement.

  • Employability skills development.

  • Support for young people not in education, employment or training.

  • Financial Resilience.

We are particularly keen to receive applications from projects that have the potential to meet more than one of the key themes through for example the provision of activities that encourage different generations to work together in support of common goals e.g. mentoring programmes for employability development, projects that seek to transfer skills across generations.

Priorities

Applications from organisations operating in central Stirling will be prioritised. 

Exclusions

The programme does not currently fund the following:

  • Individuals

  • Groups whose annual income in the current or previous financial year is over £500,000.

  • Groups with fewer than 3 members on their management committee or board.

  • Groups whose grant request is for the advancement of religion or politics (including requests to support the core activities of religious or political groups) 

  • Groups whose grant request is for less than 25% of the total project costs

  • The purchase of second hand vehicles       

  • The repayment of loans or payment of debts

  • Costs already incurred or activities which will take place before we have made a decision on an application (retrospective funding)

  • Trips abroad

  • Payments towards areas generally understood to be the responsibility of statutory authorities.

  • Groups who will then distribute the funds as grants or bursaries

  • General fundraising appeals or activities

  • Applications that are for the sole benefit to flora and fauna. Applicants are invited to demonstrate the direct benefit to the local community and/or service users in cases where the grant application is concerned with flora and fauna.

  • Projects which do not benefit people in Stirling and the surrounding areas.

Timescales

Applications must be received by 12 noon  on 1st November 2017.
