The Stevenston Charitable Trust



Fund status: Open
Closing date: December 15, 2023
Funding category: Arts/Culture, Health

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.
