The Ardoch Development Trust receives annual income from Braes of Doune and Burnfoot wind farms. It also raises funds from donations and fundraising events to be used for community projects in the Braco and Greenloaning area.
Local groups can apply for assistance with various projects including; hire of premises, equipment and materials, one-off events or ongoing costs.
The trustees meet at approximately 6 week intervals. Although grants can be applied for at any time, those received within 5 days of the next published meeting may be deferred to the the next available meeting. Under no circumstances will applications be considered that are submitted within 24 hours of the next meeting. The trustees are all volunteers and need time in advance of the meeting to consider submissions, so please plan ahead and help us to help you. The next scheduled meeting is available on this site in the ADT calendar and will also be posted on the ADT and community facebook pages.
Normally grants will be agreed in advance of any project work being undertaken and only in exceptional circumstances will retrospective funding be considered.
ADT usually part-funds projects, though the applicant’s contribution can be in kind i.e. voluntary work. However, projects can also be fully funded depending on circumstances.
A group does not need to be formally constituted or have a bank book to apply for funding.
Equally ADT would love to hear from individuals with an idea of community benefit.
