The Weir Charitable Trust has a small amount of funding that it provides each year as grants to small charities and community groups with an income of less than £100,000 that are providing services or have projects that help Scottish communities.
The average grant is typically around £3,500, although applications for larger amounts will be considered, and is intended for small groups who are struggling to secure funding for their activities from mainstream sources.
To be eligible, proposals must address one of the following areas:
- Recreational Facilities
- Animal Welfare
Please note the Trust will not fund individuals, social enterprises, governing bodies or commercial ventures, including business start-ups, nor can it sponsor groups undertaking an event to raise money for a charity.
The deadlines for applications are 28 February and 31 August 2018 (5pm).
