The Stevenston Charitable Trust was established in 2000 with the particular aim of supporting the arts, and particularly the art of music, in the Lothians and Borders regions of Scotland. It makes grants to charities which work in the following fields:
- the advancement of the arts and culture: the Trustees favour musical and visual arts, but other aspects of the arts and culture will be considered. Charities which promote access to the arts by young people are of particular interest to the Trustees. The vast majority of grants are made in this field
- the advancement of health: the Trustees consider only a small number of grants in this field in any one year focused on the Lothians and Borders regions of Scotland only. Large national health charities are unlikely to be successful.
Who can apply
The Trust makes grants to charitable bodies only. Projects in Edinburgh, the Lothians and Borders are supported, but the primary focus is on East Lothian.
When to apply
The Trustees meet once a year, usually in January or February, to decide on grants for the following 12 months. Applications should reach them no earlier than 1 September and not later than 15 December.
Applications received outside of that timeframe will be declined automatically so apply in good time and do not apply too early.
Next deadline: 15 Dec 2022
- The Stevenston Charitable Trust makes grants to charitable bodies only.
- Applications by individuals will not be considered. Charities which carry out work outside of the Lothians and Borders are unlikely to be considered.
