Funding Scotland is a service provided by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO). It is a FREE and easy to use online search of funding opportunities available for voluntary sector organisations in Scotland.

As the largest database dedicated specifically to funding for groups working in Scotland, it is used by more than 150,000 people each year who carry out almost 280,000 searches. There are currently over 1,300 funding opportunities listed on the database, with more being added all the time.

Whether you are a registered charity, small community group, or social enterprise, it can help you find the right funds for you, no matter your size.

How can Funding Scotland help during the cost-of-living crisis?

In response to the cost-of-living crisis, funders are changing their criteria, opening new programmes, or closing others to redirect funding. As Funding Scotland is regularly updated, the website is a useful resource to help keep track as things change.

You can use the search to find specific cost-of-living funding programmes, as well as project related costs like improving the energy efficiency of a building or supporting beneficiaries who are most affected by the crisis.

Visit and use the search bar to get started.
