ScotRail Foundation

We’ve partnered with Foundation Scotland to manage funds that help local communities flourish across the country.

We know how important the railway is to the communities we serve, and we want to do all we can to strengthen and support that link. Since we began working together in 2016, over £200,000 has been distributed to grassroots projects across Scotland.

The funds

Cultural and Arts Fund

The current programme is closed for applications.

It is anticipated that the fund will reopen for new applications in early 2020.

Employee Charitable Giving Fund

ScotRail colleagues can benefit from the Foundation’s £10,000 Employee Charitable Giving Fund.

The fund, which rewards colleagues fundraising, can match the money raised – up to £250 for each application.

In total, since 2016, our colleagues have raised over £77,000 which we topped up by £27,000.

This is a rolling programme with decisions made monthly until December 2018.
