How to apply for a grant if your organisation is in or around Glasgow

If your organisation is within a 25-mile radius of Glasgow and works to improve the life of disadvantaged people, we may be able to help.  We have an annual local grants budget of £30,000, with an individual grant award budget of no greater than £1,000.


The grant application window for the Glasgow local grant programme will be open until 15 August - we will communicate decisions to charities by 14 September 2018.

BEFORE starting to complete the form, please take the time to read through all the questions to make sure you have all the required details to hand.  It is not possible to save the form as you are completing it, so this is essential.

Supporting documents - please ensure you have your latest Annual Report and Accounts (in Word, pdf or other emailable format) to submit along with the form - you will be prompted to email these at the end of the application process.   PLEASE NOTE, you will be unable to submit the form without attaching the supporting document(s).
Once you have completed the form please click on the 'Submit application' button at the bottom of the form to email this and the supporting documentation to the Zurich Community Trust team.  

The committee will then make and communicate their decisions by the 14 September.

For advice about the application process or to talk through your particular grant application, please contact Carla Mandis on 07812 265216 or email

The Grants Committee give careful consideration to all applications. However, the demand for grants nearly always exceeds the amount of funds available. This means that some good applications, whilst meeting our criteria, still have to be rejected.
