Criteria For Funding

The following conditions apply:

  • Applications need to be from constituted groups, with a bank account, and have at least 3 members.
  • The project, equipment or service to be funded must have a clear benefit to the residents of the Strathglass Community and fulfil one or more of our charitable objectives.
  • Only applications received during set open dates can be considered, Late applications will need to be updated and re-submitted for the next funding round.
  • We will assess each application individually and endeavour to distribute funds fairly.
  • There is no minimum or maximum limit on grant applications.

Each case will be discussed by the board members and put through our scoring system before a decision is made. If your application is successful, you will be required to supply photographs, receipts and a letter to explain how your grant was used, within one year of receiving the money, in order to support SCF’s governance as an accountable charity.

PLEASE NOTE: SFC does not fund applications for costs already incurred or activities that have taken place prior to making the application (i.e retrospective funding).
