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
    Organisations which have already received three year revenue funding may apply for a further two years of funding. The application should be for the same work outlined in your original application and your budget should reflect any increased costs of the project or service.  Priority will be given to those organisations which can demonstrate that they have exceeded their planned outcomes and activities throughout the period of funding.

    If your three year revenue award was made under our old strategy, before November 2016, please refer to our current Giving Strategy to ensure that the work you are asking us to fund aligns with this
  • To apply for funding for Continuation 4 & 5 please contact the Giving Team by e-mailing quoting your current grant reference number (e.g. 2017/1234) and we will email you a link to complete our online application form.
