ONECITY TRUST OPEN FOR GRANT APPLICATIONS
GRANTS OF BETWEEN £5,000 AND £10,000 AVAILABLE

The OneCity Trust is pleased to announce that its main grant funding programme opens for applications from Monday 9 March 2020. Registered charities and constituted groups based in Edinburgh and focussing their work in the city; ideally with an annual income of less than £500,000 per year (but other organisations exceeding this amount may be considered), are invited to apply for funding for equality and social inclusion projects meeting one or more of the following priorities:

  • COMMUNITY CONNECTEDNESS
  • CULTURAL BRIDGING
  • CIVIC INCLUSION

For the fifth year, we are pleased to note that we continue our partnership with Travis Perkins Managed Services and the City of Edinburgh Council. This is a Community Benefit Legacy fund offered to the Council by Travis Perkins Managed Services as part of a major contract and is managed through the OneCity Trust.

Applications for this funding will be considered from organisations that involve City of Edinburgh Council tenants or from other organisations aiming to benefit geographical areas with a high proportion of Council homes.

Overall, the Trust intends to make up to 15 grants, of between £5,000 and £10,000.

The deadline for applications is 5pm Friday 8 May 2020, and projects should commence on 6 July 2020 and run for up to one year. Please note one off projects will also be considered.

A condition of this funding agreement will be the promotion, media and photographic opportunities organised with the OneCity Trust, at any time throughout the period of the fund. You must also acknowledge the source of your funding at every opportunity, e.g. logos on websites, promotional materials, etc.
