The aim of the Weir Charitable Trust is to support individuals, groups and charities, new or established, which are based in Scotland and provide services in Scotland. The Trust anticipates supporting charitable groups with an annual income of less than £100,000 that find difficulty in sourcing funds from traditional or mainstream funders.
Although grants of up to £25,000 are available, the average grant is typically £3,500.
To be eligible for funding, proposals should fall within the following five main areas:
• Health • Sport • Culture • Recreational Facilities • Animal Welfare
Applications are invited for projects and activities that improve the quality of life for people wherever they are in Scotland.
There are two funding rounds per year.
