Bank of Scotland Foundation - Invest
The Invest Grants Programme for 2021 by The Bank of Scotland Foundation will have a theme of Financial Vulnerability. The programme will provide funding to charities to help vulnerable people across Scotland manage various financial issues, including those who were already facing significant difficulties with their finances before the pandemic, and those who are now accessing charity support services for the first time as a direct result of the pandemic.
Any charity with an annual income of between £100,000 and £1m and who are either a financial vulnerability charity or one that has projects addressing financial vulnerability, are eligible to apply for up to five years of funding. This could include for example charities or projects addressing poverty, unemployment, debt or loss of income or those providing financial advice and assisting with financial literacy. Eligible charities can apply for between £20,000 - 40,000 per year.
