Apply for Continuation Funding

Please note that The Robertson Trust has published its new Giving Strategy. This sets out the priorities we will have when awarding funds through our open grants programme. The existing application form and guidelines can still be used until July 31st. In line with our existing procedures, we will aim to assess and present all applications received by this date to our September Board meeting. In the event that we are unable to do so, your application may be held until our November meeting. In such cases a member of staff will contact you and provide any assistance required to realign your application with the new Giving Strategy. Find out all you need to know here.

There are two categories of continuation funding that can be applied for:

  • Continuation 2-3
    In some cases where three year funding is requested, the Trust may only award one year with further funding subject to specific conditions being met, including a review of progress over the past year. If you applied for three year funding and only received one year, please refer to the condition of award which should be clearly outlined in your (Year 1) award email.

    If eligible for 2-3 year continuation funding, we will email you approximately 3 months prior to the end of your award period with a link to our online application form.
  • Continuation 4-5
    We are reaching the final stages of preparing our new Strategy which we look forward to sharing with you in summer 2020. Our current Giving themes are being reviewed as part of this and we have therefore decided not to commit to further 4 & 5 years continuation funding until these have been agreed.  We do recognise the importance of longer-term funding, a message reinforced through our stakeholder engagement, and this issue is being considered as part of our review process. Apologies for any inconvenience and please do check our website in the New Year for future updates.
