Tannach and District Wind Farm Charitable Trust


The Tannach & District Wind Farm Charitable Trust, formed in partnership between Tannach & District Community Council and Foundation Scotland, has been set up to allow various funds coming into the community from different companies or other donors to be managed in a more efficient and effective way.

Residents living in the Tannach & District Community Council area were invited to put themselves forward to serve on new Panel which makes decisions on how the funds are distributed.

The new Trust and Panel replace the Tannach & District Community Fund arrangement where the Community Council currently acted as the Panel.

The E.ON Camster Community Fund also covers this community council area and is administered by Foundation Scotland.

Information on awards made from the previous Tannach & District Community Fund can be found in the Year 1 and Year 2 annual reports under Fund News




The fund operates two funding rounds and two deadlines per year:



30 June


31 December


There is currently £37,000 available to distribute.
