Our
Grants

Our goal is to improve the quality of people’s lives in Perth and Kinross  and across Scotland, building resilience and sustainability across our community.

The Gannochy Trust awarded their first grant in 1937 and today, provides annual funding of around five million pounds to registered charities, primarily working in Perth and Kinross, but also to inspire and develop young people throughout Scotland. Our current funding strategy runs until June 2022 and applications will be considered at meetings to be held in December 2021 and March 2022.  See ‘Applying for a Grant’ for information on deadline dates.  Work is now underway on a new grants strategy which we plan to publish in early 2022. All of our grant work is inspired by our founder A.K. Bell, who was a generous, thoughtful and pragmatic philanthropist.
