About Us

Cattanach is an endowed charity and makes grants totalling around £450,000 a year. Cattanach will fund only those charitable organisations which are registered in Scotland with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator, and currently funds work only in Scotland. There are 10 Trustees on the board, which meets four times a year. A part-time Manager administers the grants programme and is the first point of contact for Cattanach. The Manager is happy to receive enquiries by phone or email at any time.

Cattanach has specific aims in its grant funding and these are set out in the Theme Statement and on the website. Cattanach aspires to be a helpful funder and to give support and advice when needed. The Cattanach Trustees wish to maintain best practice in grantmaking, and to encourage recipient organisations to think of Cattanach as a partner. They are also keen to work with other partner organisations, whether these are funders, corporate or statutory bodies, umbrella or support organisations.
