Latest Wee Grants, Small Awards and Continuation Awards announced

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.

As we announce our latest delegated awards for the months of January, February and March 2020, we appreciate things may have changed for many awardees in the short time since we undertook our assessment.

We made these awards based on the applicant organisations’ requests. However, we fully appreciate that, due to the coronavirus outbreak, some projects may have to be cancelled, postponed or delivered in a different way than originally planned. That is why we have advised recipients of restricted revenue funding that if their organisation or project is affected by Covid-19, we are happy for their award to be used in a different way if necessary.

You can read further information on how we are supporting grant holders through the coronavirus crisis here.
