Foundation Scotland's Baillie Gifford Multi-Year Awards
Created: 08/03/2022, Updated: 03/04/2022
Foundation Scotland's Baillie Gifford Multi-Year Awards fund is aimed at supporting grassroots community organisations across Scotland. Priority will be given to projects that can demonstrate a fit with one of the following priorities:
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.
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.
One grant will be to a local sports club to help people participate in grassroots sport.
Who can apply?
Constituted groups who have an annual income of less than £250,000, unless applying under financial inclusion or homelessness priority where no income cap applies.
