The Fund concentrates on two main areas for grants:

Emerging Markets: Funds focus on a small number of long term partnerships with an average duration of three years. Charities must meet the following criteria for an emerging market grant:

  • UK registered.
  • Small to medium in size, or if a larger charity, must have an identifiable project that Aberdeen can support.
  • Focus clearly on promoting education and providing wider opportunities for underprivileged young people.

Local Communities: Local community grants have much the same criteria but charities must demonstrate and have:

  • A clear and meaningful impact on the community.
  • A clear connection to a community local to one of Aberdeen’s offices.
  • A governance structure in place to allow Aberdeen to monitor the impact of the investment.

There are no deadlines and applications can be made at any time. An application form can be downloaded from the website and submitted by email.
