Deadlines/Upcoming Events

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.

Requests for Main and Major (revenue and capital) awards are considered at four Giving Committee meetings over the course of each year.  The closing date for our March 2020 Giving Committee is:

Before midday on Friday, 29th November 2019

Requests for all other types of award (small, continuation 2 & 3, continuation 4 & 5) are assessed as part of a rolling programme with no specific deadlines. We aim to ensure that applicants are advised of the Trust’s decision within approximately 8 weeks of receipt of your request.  Find out more about applying here.
