Get involved: Henry Duncan Grants Review

By 28th May 2019 June 5th, 2019 News

How can Henry Duncan Grants best evolve to meet the needs and opportunities of Scotland’s voluntary sector?

Corra Foundation is committed to being the best grant maker we can be. As part of this commitment, Corra is carrying out a full review of Henry Duncan Grants. This means we want to hear your feedback on the systems and processes as well as the criteria related to Henry Duncan Grants.

To inform the review of Henry Duncan Grants (HDG), Corra Foundation is carrying out a series of focus groups across Scotland.  The review will gather the views from a wide audience of people working across Scotland’s voluntary sector.  This includes charities which are current Henry Duncan Grant holders, those which have had a grant through HDG in the past, as well as hearing from charities that have not previously applied to HDG.  The review will also explore the wider needs and opportunities within communities to help shape future approaches to grant making.

You can also give your feedback on Corra Foundation’s grant application processes through the applicant online survey, Please follow this link to take part.
