The MacRobert Trust has recently updated their Charitable Giving Themes. These Themes define the scope of the Trust’s charitable work, under its Charitable Giving Policy and are listed below. Please take time to read the information provided, as you will be asked during the application process why you have selected a specific Theme and explain why you feel the application you are submitting meets the requirements.

Theme 1:   Armed Forces & Good Citizenship

Theme 2:   Education & Professional Excellence

Theme 3:   Local Community & Other MacRobert Interests 

The MacRobert Directors reserve the right to make changes to the Themes at any time. Given the volume of demand is far greater than the Trust could ever meet, the Executive staff will always be clear on what will be funded from the start. This will avoid unnecessary work and disappointment. Judgement’s will be made, often without a full application review, if we do not feel the Theme has been met.

Awards are made to organisations registered as charities with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator or with the relevant Charity Commission for charities operating in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Awards are to be for the support of activities and projects within the United Kingdom and our preference will be given to charities based in Scotland.
