Trusts and grants
Trusts and grants can be a major source of financial support for churches undertaking capital and mission projects. The Church of Scotland has a number of grant-finding tools available to support congregations. Contact the stewardship team for more information or visit the dedicated Grants and Funding page.
SCVO's Funding Scotland website provides a directory of grant funding opportunities available for Scottish charities. Churches can also sign up to their local council's voluntary interfaces newsletter, which often includes local grant opportunities.
Whichever grant-making bodies you choose to contact, ensure that the specific criteria is addressed in your application. An early email or telephone call to the grant-giving body can save a lot of time and effort in the application process.
