Who we are


Proud to be Scotland’s community foundation

For 25 years we’ve been working to strengthen communities throughout Scotland. We help communities take action, create positive change and deliver lasting impact.

Over the years, the generosity of funders, the dedication of community members and our expertise in community finance, have combined to enrich thousands of lives.

Our vision is of confident, thriving, resilient communities across Scotland

For every community to thrive, it should be resourced to match its vision, and powered by transformative funding. Some of the charities we support might be small, but the huge differences they are making in their communities are never underestimated.

As Scotland’s community foundation, we champion this belief. It’s about the society we want to live in and the changes we want to make.

Creating partnerships

We inspire local giving, bringing together communities, funders and finance to support communities in every corner of Scotland.

Sharing our knowledge

We make a lasting impact with broad sector knowledge, and in-depth third sector and local knowledge of Scotland’s communities.

Strengthening communities

Our purpose is to support communities to shape their future, with the capacity and resources to deliver it.
