Every year, The MacRobert Trust conducts a programme of charitable grant giving and awards, using income from our financial investments and surplus income generated by the estate and its activities. Overall, this amounts to over £1 million a year.

Applications are invited from registered charities from across the United Kingdom.

Awards are restricted to organisations that are recognised as charitable by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR), the Charity Commission for England and Wales or the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland.

All applications will be assessed and reviewed, as per the Trust’s current Charitable Policy.  If an award is made, on project completion, a final report is required. All recurring award recipients must submit a progress report and a copy of the charity’s latest accounts for each year of the project until completion. The Trustees or Executive may request a post award visit to ensure funding is being used appropriately. If an award is not made, all applicants will be advised the outcome by email.

Although there are many other areas of charitable activity, monetary awards continue to be the key charitable output for the MacRobert Trust. Please read all advice and guidance on making an application before you continue to the online portal. All information can be found here.

The largest of those ‘other areas of charitable activity’ is the Trust’s support for its Horticultural Training Scheme – details of which, along with the process to apply, can be found here Horticultural Training Scheme.
