Grants to Organisations

Grants to charitable organisations are focused predominantly on the Arts in Scotland.  Applications are considered for projects outwith the core activity of an organisation and especially with an educational remit and towards nurturing an interest and appreciation of the Arts.  Given the limited resources available, in the first instance, enquiries should be sent to the Administrator, Thea de Joode, by emailing

Those organisations who do apply should ensure that they submit a clear budget and a full copy of their accounts as part of their application.


There are two deadline dates for submission of applications, these being 30th April and 31st October. Awards will be made at the Trustee meeting which will take place approximately one month later.

The next deadline for organisations is 30 April 2022 with the Trustee meeting taking place in May 2022.


Please note that the McGlashan Charitable Trust is currently undertaking a review of grant-making policy. We hope to have concluded this review by summer 2022, and anticipate making changes to both our student and organisational award criteria and application process. These changes are expected from the following rounds:

> Organisations – 31 October 2022 deadline
> Students – 31 May 2023 deadline

Please note there will be no changes to criteria or process for those organisations or students applying to the Trust as part of the upcoming spring 2022 deadlines.
