Development Support


The in-depth knowledge that our Performance Advisor has of our organisation enriches and accelerated what is possible. This is then further enhanced by the expertise and knowledge available from the Pro Bono network.

Being supported by Inspiring Scotland is so much more than just receiving money; the impact of its legacy will never leave Street League and the lives of young people being supported.- 14:19 Fund Venture 

Focusing on providing non-financial support is critical to the venture philanthropy approach Inspiring Scotland uses.  It helps ventures become stronger more robust and sustainable organisations. 

Alongside the financial investment, we support our ventures to grow and maximise their impact.  We also work hard to ensure they can sustain their operations beyond the lifetime of the Inspiring Scotland investment. 

A Dedicated Team 

Each Fund has a dedicated team of Inspiring Scotland Performance Advisors who have an in-depth relationship with each venture. Performance Advisors monitor progress and advise on key issues relating to how the investment is spent. This includes challenging performance and delivery of outcomes, advising on operational and strategic issues and supporting organisational development and growth.  Performance Advisors are supported by the wider Inspiring Scotland team.

Pro Bono
