Giving Committee Awards (November 2016)

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.

November saw us make our first awards in our new funding strands - Care and Wellbeing, Strengthening Communities and Realising Potential - with over £1.8 million being awarded to 79 organisations across Scotland. These included:
