About Us

Bank of Scotland Foundation receives an annual donation from Lloyds Banking Group as part of the Group's commitment to Helping Scotland Prosper.  We donate these funds to charities across Scotland through our Grants Programmes and a Matched Giving Programme for Lloyds Banking Group employees in Scotland.

Since November 2010, Bank of Scotland Foundation has provided over £14m to more than 1,800 charities making positive change across Scotland, enabling over 600,000 people to benefit from a variety of much needed local services and personal support.

Supporting Positive Change Across Scotland

Launched in March 2019, ‘Supporting Positive Change Across Scotland’ is the Foundation’s five year strategic plan which will see a range of new funding programmes open in 2019 and 2020.

Four strategic aims will determine our programmes of work over the next five years:

  1. We will focus our work and impact on charities that demonstrate they address social exclusion or disadvantage.
  2. We will develop flexible, responsive grant making tailored to the needs of those we support.
  3. We will realise the value of our strategic partnership with Lloyds Banking Group.
  4. As a learning organisation we will work to improve our impact and the quality of what we do and will provide best in class customer service.

You can find out more information in our March 2019 Newsletter.
