Kinross-shire Fund

Background
The Kinross-shire Fund is dedicated to improving the quality of life of everyone who lives in the Kinross-shire community addressing local issues such as supporting the elderly and young people, community infrastructure and regeneration.  Smaller, local organisations often experience difficulties in raising funds for their work, which is why the Fund is so important to the wellbeing of the community. 

Kinross-shire raise funds from individuals and companies, which are used to make grants to local charities and voluntary organisations. Some of the funds raised are invested and will enable Kinross-shire to respond to community needs in years to come.

Where Support Comes From
The Kinross-shire Fund is supported by committee members from the five community councils, the Kinross-shire Partnership, schools and churches. 

I am delighted to be involved with the Kinross-shire Fund because I know that, if we all work together, we can make our community even stronger

"As a local business we believe it is important to support our community by giving something back and the Kinross-shire is the best way to do that"

How Grants Are Made From The Fund
Funding priorities, such as community welfare and facilities will be selected by the local committee and reviewed regularly to ensure areas of need are addressed.  These priorities will guide grant awards, which will be approved by the local committee and then checked by the independent SCF Grants Committee.  

Grants from the Kinross-shire Fund will be made to organisations or projects benefiting people in the Kinross-shire county area.  Click here to find out more about the projects supported.

The grantmaking staff of the Scottish Community Foundation will be handling all enquiries about applying to the fund before the grants programme is launched. Still in it’s infancy, we're looking forward to when the fund reaches a level where an open grants programme is operating.
