Thematic funds

We identify and solve deep-rooted social problems.

Through our thematic funds, we bring together the right people and organisations to design rigorous and innovative solutions. We work in the communities that need it most and build strong partnerships with government and business to maximise our impact.

Fostering collaboration across a portfolio of charities and a network of experts, we help each organisation to develop individually, and create the right environment for lasting, sustainable partnerships.

We raise and manage funds, and support charities to leverage more. We study, research, evaluate, learn and share our knowledge, helping our portfolio to prove successes and become more effective.

Our highly-experienced staff work closely with each organisation, tailoring support to their unique circumstances and helping to develop local and cross-sector relationships.

We want to make Scotland a better place and each thematic fund, and every person, organisation and network within it, works towards that goal. Together, we are committed for as long as it takes, whatever it takes.
