Douneside Award Guidelines and Application Link
Applicants must follow these guidelines when submitting an application:
- Douneside awards are those that are of a total monetary value between £10,001 and £50,000 per award.
- Applications for this type of award will be reviewed every six months.
- The review timeline is available within the monetary pages of the website.
- Applicants will be informed of the outcome on completion of the review process.
- Applications can be made at any time and will be considered at the next review.
- Dates will be strictly adhered to and any late submissions will automatically be deferred for consideration at the next Board meeting. Charities will be informed if this does occur and be given the option to withdraw.
- Successful applicants cannot apply to the Trust again until two years after the award payment has been made.
- Unsuccessful applicants cannot apply to the Trust again until one year after notification of a rejection.
- With a multi-year award the time bar applies from the date the final award payment was made.
- Withdrawn applications will not face a time bar.
The following list of additional guidance should be reviewed by applicants before continuing:
- Do not apply for an award unless you are a registered charity in Scotland, England and Wales, or Northern Ireland.
- Our application process is now completely online and no paper copy is required.
- Please keep your application clear and concise, however you may include additional informative documentation, if this would add value to your request.
- Please review your online application carefully before submission. It may not be possible to amend the application during the process.
- Always include a covering letter to introduce your charity.
- An application can be saved in draft format and completed at a later date.
- On submission, an email acknowledgement and copy of the application will be sent to you by return.
- Given the lead time for the application, a financial update may be requested ahead of the Board meeting.
