Grants of up to £1,000 for community projects (requires match funding)

Esmee Fairburn Foundation

Grants supporting work that contributes to a just and inclusive society at every level (individual, community and system). We believe that the best solutions are owned by and built for communities, so we fund them to thrive and deliver long term impact, whether by place or particular theme. We support work that removes barriers preventing marginalised and isolated people from participating and making a valuable contribution to society.

Nominet Social Tech Seed Fund

This is an open grant-funding programme that offers entrepreneurial organisations early-stage investment to develop innovative projects harnessing the power of the internet and digital technologies to deliver significant social change. 

Gordon Fraser Charitable Trust

Recipients must be registered charities but the trustees have complete discretion as to the type of charitable work supported. In recent years there has been some concentration on support for charities working with children or young people and those active in the environment and the arts. There has also been a preference for applications from and for Scotland but not to the exclusion of applications from elsewhere

Mickel Fund

This fund includes housing and homelessness in its priorities and has a preference for Scottish work

james weir foundation
