The Bank of Scotland Foundation supports people and their local communities across Scotland.
The Foundation aims to do this by assisting charities in their work with funding through our Small Grants Programme. The concerns that charities address may be unique to their own area, or they may be shared with other organisations in other regions. They may even be of national importance. It is our intention to make a genuine, tangible difference to individuals and their communities.
The Foundation also runs a Volunteering Grants Programme which assists charities with funding to deliver projects through volunteering. The details of charities who are successful in obtaining a grant through this programme are shared with Lloyds Banking Group and the Group aims to engage colleague volunteers to support the projects that are being funded.
Acknowledging the important value that Lloyds Banking Group colleagues provide to local communities through the giving of their time and skills, the Foundation's Matched Giving Programme encourages Lloyds Banking Group colleagues to become active within the community by providing matched giving for their charitable fundraising efforts and time given to charities.
