Welcome to The Christina Mary Hendrie Charitable Trust

The Christina Mary Hendrie Trust is in the fortunate position of being able to provide grants to charitable bodies in Scotland and Canada.

Hardship and suffering affect all ages but the trustees are committed to supporting charities which provide predominantly for the young and the elderly.  They will also support veterans' organisations regardless of age and have a separate policy on supporting hospices.

Applications come from a variety of sources and the trustees will themselves seek out and invite suitable bodies to apply. They fully appreciate how hard it is to raise funds particularly when economic times are hard and never more so now as the world starts to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.  They are particularly keen to hear from charities they have supported previously but would also welcome applications from new charities who meet the criteria.


One of the unique features of The Christina Mary Hendrie Trust is its connection with Canada, and you can read more about this in the History section of the website.  It can be more difficult to attract applications from suitable bodies in Canada than it is in Scotland.  However there are still family ties in Canada, mostly in Ontario, and the trust has a partnership arrangement with the St Andrew's Society of Toronto.

Before applying online, please ensure that you fit our criteria:

You are a Scottish or Canadian charity specialising in work related to veterans, young people, and the elderly.

If you are unsure, or would like further information, please contact The Secretaries.
