The Foundation is delighted to announce its award of £43,534 to Scottish Refugee Council
We aim to achieve the following three key outcomes through our grant giving:
Effective Learning: equity for students in accessing the best educational opportunities,
Improving Pedagogy: demonstrating effective practice, increasing educator confidence and increasing learner attainment and
Increased capability and capacity of the College and its partners to deliver on the first two themes.
We actively seek creative partnerships with employers, other grant makers and external organisations which share our aspirations.
As a Scottish Incorporated Organisation we are governed by a Board of seven trustees, of whom five are independent and appointed by the College, which is a corporate member of the charity. We are committed to the highest standards of governance and participate as a member of the Scottish Grant Makers, updating our understanding and skills in grant making and charity governance on a regular basis.
Our governing documents are available here.
You can also view our audited annual Trustees report and accounts for the years we have been operating. These are also available on the OSCR website.
The Trustees meet quarterly to oversee the operation and stewardship of the Foundation’s funds and to take decisions on applications for funding made by the College and community organisations which help the charity deliver its objectives.
Trustees are also responsible for aiming to grow the Foundation’s Funds to generate additional income to meet its charitable purposes.
