Giving Strategy 2016-19

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.

We are pleased to announce that our Giving Strategy 2016-19 has now been published and can be downloaded here.

The strategy sets out our future priorities when awarding funds through our open grants programme and has been developed in consultation with the Third Sector in Scotland.

The purpose of this document is to:

  • describe the principles which underpin the Trust’s new Giving Strategy
  • explain the positive changes (outcomes) which we hope our funding will achieve over the next three years
  • outline the context and provide a full description of our newly developed Funding Strands including some of the identified needs and where we think our funding can make a difference.
