The Glasgow Airport FlightPath Fund is now accepting applications from community groups and charities working in areas surrounding the airport.
Glasgow Airport’s FlightPath Fund has published details of its 2017/18 funding round.
The Fund was established in 2010 to ensure local communities share in the success of the airport. The funding comes from the Communities Trust, charity collection boxes in the terminal, and a donation from Glasgow Airport based on annual financial performance.
Grants are available to local community groups and charities that are working to improve opportunities, facilities and services for residents in the areas of Glasgow, Renfrewshire, East Dunbartonshire and West Dunbartonshire which are most affected by the airport’s operation.
Projects should address at least one of the following target areas:
- Employment. Local projects should aim to break down barriers to employment through skills development.
- Environment. Local projects should have a focus on protecting and enhancing the local natural environment.
- Education. Social and educational projects which are bring about positive benefits and change to the lives of young people.
There is no minimum or maximum grant request. Funding is at the discretion of the Funder.
Applications must be submitted at least three weeks before the meeting dates of 30 June, 15 September and 3 November 2017.
