Jerwood Charitable Foundation – Large and Small Grants

Support is available to individuals and organisations in the United Kingdom. Organisations do not need to be registered charities providing the project has charitable aims.

Hugh Fraser Foundation

Grants are available to non-profit organisations for charitable work in the UK, with a preference for Scotland.  The Trustees favour smaller, more focused causes rather than large highly-publicised appeals.

Grants are made to non-profit organisations for charitable purposes. The Trustees' focus is on making grants to charitable bodies to assist them with their work.

The Trustees' policy is to pay special regard to applications from Scotland, particularly from parts of Scotland where the local economy and/or circumstances make fundraising for charitable purposes difficult.
