This is the main grant fund which Cainie Glass Community Trust manages. Grants are offered between £100 and £5,000 for a range of community activities.
We can fund a wide variety of community activities, but all projects must fit within one of the following 'Funding Themes':
Sense of community
Enhancing our environment
Health and wellbeing
Heritage and the arts
Grants can be made from the following applicants:
community groups, clubs and societies
limited companies, provided the project delivers wider benefits for the community
individuals (small grants under £1,000 only) and must demonstrate wider benefits for the community
The eligible area is the civil parishes of Cairnie, Aberdeenshire and Glass, Aberdeenshire.
Applicants to the community grant fund do not neccessarily have to be based in the eligible area, but the project activity should be of substantial benefit to the residents of Cairnie and/or Glass.
Project activities should usually take place within the eligible area
Projects located outwith the eligible area should demonstrate how the project will benefit the residents of Cairnie or Glass, and applications of this nature will only be approved in special circumstances at the full discretion of the CGCT committee
