The Robertson Trust was established in 1961 by the three Robertson sisters to provide financial support for charities as defined by the Law of Scotland. This funding enables the Trust to donate to a wide range of charitable objects and activities, which take place in, or have a direct impact on Scotland. In 2012/3 the Trust committed over £15M to charities throughout Scotland, an increase of 25% on the previous year.
In order to most effectively distribute Trust funding, we have developed policies, procedures and priorities which are reviewed every two years. The current Guidelines have been updated in 2013 and are available in the “Making an Application” section.
