What does a successful application look like?
While each of the trustees will have their own idea of what makes a good application, there are a few general guidelines which they will follow. These will give prospective applicants a feel for what the trustees like to see.
- Smaller local organisations will be preferred to larger well-funded ones
- Charities helping greater numbers of people will be preferred to those helping only a few. Group activity is preferred to individual support
- Those involved in early intervention will be preferred
- Those helping people with limited resources are preferred to those helping a broader range of the community
- Geographical spread is important both in Scotland and Canada
- Specific projects are preferred to general funding but contributions to the cost of employing staff, community workers are acceptable
- Achieving aims through sport, organised physical activity, the arts, yoga and education are preferred
- Building projects are not generally supported
- Scottish charities will be preferred to English based charities offering services in Scotland
- In Canada, applications relating to issues facing First Nation citizens and those in remote rural areas are invited
