Baxter legacy foundation encourage groups to seek grant funding
In 2017, grants ranged from £100 to £60,000 and totalled more than £150,000, benefitting around 60 worthy causes. Now, trustees are looking for further innovative projects to back as they look to the next funding round.
The Foundation manages personal legacies left by Gordon and Ena Baxter of the Moray-based Baxters Food Group, and awards funds five times each year to charities and community organisations seeking to benefit their local community. They can be working in education, health, social welfare, sport, arts, heritage, conservation and the environment.
In early 2017, the Foundation held a celebratory exhibition to mark the award of £500,000 to a wide range of well-managed projects. At the time, trustees set the ambitious goal of reaching the £1million mark by the end of 2018.
The next funding round will take place in April and anyone interested in applying should contact Foundation manager Kay Jackson for an informal chat on 01343 822599 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Trustees will also meet to consider applications in June, August and October and you can visit www.gebfoundation.com for further information.
