Bank of Scotland Foundation provides almost £1m of additional financial support to Scotland’s Third Sector
In light of the new challenge impacting Scotland, we are providing almost £1m of additional financial support to Scotland’s Third Sector to help charities through the cost of living crisis. This will enable us to provide more grants throughout the remainder of this year, as well as providing extra support to our current grantees.
All our current grantees have been offered a 10% grant uplift to help towards rising costs and ensure they can continue to deliver their services. We expect 179 charities to share £327,332.
As there is the strong possibility that some charities will not be able to survive the coming year, we have increased the budgets of our remaining programmes for this year by £650,000 to ensure more charities can benefit from our programmes.

We donate these funds to charities across Scotland through our Grants Programmes and a Matched Giving Programme for Lloyds Banking Group employees in Scotland.
Launched in March 2019, ‘Supporting Positive Change Across Scotland’ is the Foundation’s five year strategic plan which will see a range of new funding programmes open in 2019 and 2020. See About Us for more information.
