Latest Giving Committee awards now available

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.

The full award listings from our latest Giving Committee can now be viewed here and printed from here.

Just over £2.6 million was awarded to 84 organisations across Scotland in our three funding strands; Care and Wellbeing, Strengthening Communities and Realising Potential. Among these awards were:
