Grant making TrustsGrants from charitable trusts and foundations are a major source of funding for MND Scotland, contributing over £120,000 to our income last year.  These organisations are established in order to distribute income to good causes: many are family trusts, set up in a bequest or in memory of an individual; others are the charitable arm of a commercial enterprise.  The money we receive from trusts is ‘restricted’ or ‘unrestricted’.  Unrestricted grants can be used for any purpose, while restricted funds are given for a defined purpose. Trusts often specify the type of work they wish to support and, because of the range of services we offer, MND Scotland is well-placed to submit applications targeting their interests.  For example, we receive many grants towards our Care Service and Equipment Loan from trusts wishing to help people affected by ill health or disability, while others help to fund our services in a particular geographical area.

 

Trusts and grant funders have again been a significant source of income in 2012-2013, helping us to maintain and develop our vital services.  The R S Macdonald Trust gave substantial grants towards the Care Service and the Welfare and Benefits service, which has also received generous funding from the Bank of Scotland Foundation.  An award from the Creative Breaks programme of Shared Care Scotland has given us the opportunity to offer small grants towards short breaks for people with MND and those who care for them.  We are extremely grateful to all the organisations listed below for their kind support – every donation gives direct help where it really counts.

A list of the trusts that have supported us in 2012-2013 is given here.  Every grant has given direct help those affected by MND in Scotland, and we are deeply grateful to all our benefactors.  If you would like more information on this aspect of our fundraising, or how your organisation could support us, please contact Virginia Hewitt at virginia [dot] hewitt [at] mndscotland [dot] org
