The Stevenston Charitable Trust

Established in 2000 with the particular aim of supporting the arts, and particularly the art of music, in the Lothians and Borders regions of Scotland.

The Stevenston Charitable Trust makes grants to charities which work in the following fields:

  1. The advancement of the arts and culture – the Trustees favour musical and visual arts, but other aspects of the arts and culture will be considered. Charities which promote access to the arts by young people are of particular interest to the Trustees. The vast majority of grants are made in this field.
  2. The advancement of health – the Trustees consider only a small number of grants in this field in any one year focused on the Lothians and Borders regions of Scotland only. Large national health charities are unlikely to be successful.

Applications should reach them by email or in hard copy no earlier than 1st September and not later than 15th December. Applications received outside of that timeframe will be declined automatically so please apply in good time if you wish to be considered and do not apply too early. Successful applicants will normally be advised of any award by early March at the latest. The Trustees normally pay grants prior to 31st March in each year.

The Trustees typically make awards of between £1,000 and £3,000 available. Larger grants or multi-year commitments are available only in very limited circumstances, at the Trustees’ discretion.
