Small Grants Fund
The Church of Scotland's Small Grants Fund provides grants for short-term project funding of between 3 and 12 months.
Up to £1,000
Individual Church of Scotland churches and presbyteries and groups of churches or presbyteries can apply. Churches and presbyteries are also able to work with ecumenical partners, though the application will need to come from the Church of Scotland church or presbytery.
How to apply
Those wishing to apply must complete and submit an application form along with a scan of a signed extract minute from the kirk session or presbytery. Further information and template documents are available on the Small Grants Fund How to Apply page.
Learn more about the fund, eligibility and how to apply on our Small Grants Fund page.
The Guild's Initiative Fund
Grants of up to £1000 are available to Guilds looking to do innovative projects in their church or community. We want to encourage people to think of new ways of "being the Guild" and of serving the church and the wider community in ways that allow the Guild to creatively meet its three principles of worship, prayer and action.
There is no firm guidance on the amounts of money available; however, a typical grant will be a few hundred pounds.
The grant is open to any Church of Scotland Guild.
How to apply
An application form is available by contacting the Guild office: 0131 240 2217 or emailing email@example.com.
More information about the Fund is available on the Guild Initiative Fund page.
