Foundation Scotland - Baillie Gifford Multi-Year Grants
This is an annual programme that offers grants of between £2,000 and £5,000 per year up to a maximum of three years. Note that the fund can support 100% of the project costs if the total cost does not exceed £15,000. The programme can also accept applications that exceed £15,000 over three years so long as the grant request is for at least ¼ of the total project costs. In these cases, the maximum project cost can be for no more than £60,000 over three years. Priority will be given to projects that can demonstrate a fit with one of the following themes.
Reducing isolation in Scotland’s communities – this includes all forms of isolation whether due to health, disability, rurality, or projects which aim to tackle barriers to inclusion. This list is not exhaustive.
Supporting financial inclusion – this can include food poverty-related projects and those that seek to maximise the income of families that may be struggling due to the impact of Universal Credit, disability, in work poverty and so on.
Overcoming homelessness – this includes any work to tackle homelessness in our communities.
Improving employability and enterprise, particularly in young people.
