Governance & Process

The Scottish Community Foundation is a charitable company limited by guarantee (SC022910) and as such we report to the Inland Revenue and we are registered with and report to the Office of Scottish Charity Regulator. Our Trustees meet four times a year and our three sub-committees report to this main board.

The Finance committee makes recommendations regarding investment policies and decisions and reviews our costs, cost ratios and operating budgets, including remuneration. The Grants committee makes grant award decisions, based on assessments carried out by our staff and volunteer assessors, and monitors grant award distribution against plans. The Development committee supports the business development function and reviews communications and fund development progress against operational plans.

Our development staff are members of the Institute of Fundraising and our Finance Director is a member of ICAS.
