Bank of Scotland Foundation recognises that coronavirus (Covid-19) will have a huge impact on charities throughout Scotland. In many instances, charities will be even more crucial than ever in providing practical and emotional support and tackling isolation.
To ensure Reach supports a greater number of charities over the coming months, for the remainder of 2020, Reach will be a monthly programme. The eligibility criteria has also been broadened and charities with an income of £1.5m or less can now apply for funding between £5,000 - £30,000 over one year.
The first three tranches of Reach are detailed below:
|Open for applications||Deadline for applications||Awards made|
|12 noon Mon 24 August||12 noon Thu 27 August||Early October|
|12 noon Mon 8 June||12 noon Fri 12 June||Mid-July|
