Grant-giving Trusts with funds

VOLUNTARY Action Angus (VAA), has told the Review about grant-giving Trusts which are seeking applications for funds.

The Agnes Hunter Trust

This funds a variety of charities, including those that help disabled people, including those affected by physical disability or illness and those with mental health problems or learning disabilities; or assist with the education and training of disadvantaged people or with youth development projects.

The Trust does not have an application form. Application is by letter so that organisations can express themselves in their own words.

However, information required includes a brief description of the organisation’s history, background, aims, objectives and achievements; and a full description of the project requiring funding – what do you want to do, who will be involved, where will it take place and how will it be managed?

Gordon Fraser Charitable Trust

The Trustees favour organisations set up to further the visual arts and museums; organisations involved with the performing arts particularly if children and young people and/or people with disabilities are involved; small medical charities; and environmental charities including support of the built environment.

Applications are considered by the trustees quarterly in January, April, July and October.
