About Funding Scotland
Funding Scotland's purpose is to improve the process of identifying and communicating funding information in Scotland.
We do this by providing the online platform for organisations seeking funding (Fund Seekers), and organisations offering funding (Funders), to work more efficiently.
By shortening the route between Funders and Fund Seekers we aim to contribute to improved outcomes for the ultimate beneficiaries of support funding.
Funding Scotland operates as a social enterprise. All income generated is reinvested into the operation of the business and the continuous improvement of our services.
fundingScotland.com is the platform for delivering our services.
This website records information about grants and funding programmes accessible to organisations operating in Scotland. Funding programmes include those managed by Lottery Distributors, Corporate and Charitable Trusts, Statutory Organisations, European Commission, and others.
This information is offered freely to Fund Seekers.
fundingScotland.com also gives Funders an opportunity to manage information about their programmes. This helps to keep information valid and up-to-date and establishes a direct relationship between Funders and their target audience.
Clarity of information and two-way communications establishes fundingScotland.com as the single online interface between Fund Seekers and Funders.
This website should be the first point of reference for all public, private and third sector organisations wishing to identify the level and nature of funding opportunities for organisations operating in Scotland.
By improving the processes for identifying and communicating funding information, Funding Scotland presents the potential for significant efficiency savings.
We are motivated by the desire to reduce the financial and administrative resources expended by all organisations with an interest in the funding sector.
Internet technologies present great opportunities for resource efficiencies. By embracing these opportunities we can all contribute to back-office resource savings to increase the delivery of front-line activities.
