Udny Community Fund

As part of our commitment to help the community of Udny to develop, we manage the sizable Udny Community Fund.  Since it opened in 2011, we have distributed £630,000 to local good causes and continue to welcome grant applications from groups and organisations who meet the agreed criteria which is detailed below.

- Open to voluntary / not-for-profit organisations and community groups. *
- NOT open to individuals or private businesses.
- Eligible area is Udny. **
- Eligible for funding capital (e.g., equipment) and revenue costs (e.g., venue hire).

*  It is not necessary to be a registered charity to apply.  However, organisations and groups must be capable of meeting the ‘Charities Test’ as set out by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR).  For more information, please see the OSCR website by clicking on the link below.

**  Projects that are not in Udny can apply but MUST be in an nearby area and ensure that they can demonstrate how the group and / or project provides benefit to the community of Udny.  In such cases, it is strongly recommended that you speak to our Community Engagement Officer before completing and submitting a grant application.
