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 £170,000 has been distributed to grassroots projects across Scotland.

The funds

Cultural and Arts Fund

The £60,000 Cultural and Arts Fund is more than doubling the size of its grants. In 2018 we'll be awarding grants of between £500 and £5,000 in support of the arts, children, community activities, and sports.

Grants from the Cultural and Arts fund are available to individuals and groups with an income of less than £100,000.

Closing date for applications: 29 October 2018.

Employee Charitable Giving Fund

ScotRail employees can benefit from the Foundation’s £10,000 Employee Charitable Giving Fund. If you've raised money for a registered charity, the fund can match the money raised – up to £250 for each application.

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