The Women’s Fund has re-opened for grant applications! You can start the application process today! The deadline is the 28th of September. The Women’s Fund for Scotland are keen to identify community groups that empower women and girls to reach their full potential. The Women’s Fund for Scotland are on a mission to make a difference not just individuals, but their family and needs of the community.
Thanks to a £600k grant from the UK Government’s Tampon Tax Fund, the Women’s Fund for Scotland is extending its grant making. Whilst retaining its existing small grants programme, which distributes grants of £500 to £2000, the WFS is introducing a multi-year large grants programme – up to £30,000 over 3 years. It has also removed the cap of £250,000 on annual turnover to allow charities and community groups of any size to apply. Click here to read more about the new grant making programme.
The Women’s Fund for Scotland is on a mission to identify community based groups who might otherwise fall beneath the radar or lack confidence to apply. Often the Women’s Fund is the sole supporter of groups and the Fund enables the group it supports to develop their ability to then approach other funders.

The Women’s Fund for Scotland is a constituent Fund of Foundation Scotland. It benefits from the Foundation’s robust governance, infrastructure and grant making expertise to ensure that funding gets to grass roots community organisations where it can achieve lasting impact.
