Are You Eligible?

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.

If you are considering making an application to our Open Awards Programme, make sure you are able to agree with the following statements:

  • My organisation is a registered Charity or Community Interest Company Limited by Guarantee
  • My organisation is not a Housing Association, or Arms Length External Organisation (ALEO) of a local authority 
  • My organisation has less than 12 months free reserves or can demonstrate financial need (more information on this is available in our FAQs)
  • My organisation's proposed work will take place in Scotland
  • My organisation's proposed work falls within one of our funding strands

If you are still unsure if your organisation is eligible, please review our FAQs and then get in touch with a member of the Giving Team
