Q4 19/20

Report Date
August 2020

It has been a busier than expected quarter for community grants, for all the right reasons!

An additional £25k of funding reallocated to the scheme by the University (from Santander) specifically for Covid-19 projects was all disbursed over the last 2 quarters, including just over £6k of micro-grants during this last quarter. The University has now supported around 80 organisations in and around Edinburgh.

We also had a successful virtual community grantees get-together during this quarter and, based on feedback from grantees, have set up a Facebook group and email list for communicating with them and to allow them to communicate with each other. Virtual get-togethers are less work than physical ones (now we know what we're doing), so we aim to run them quarterly in 20/21.

Development & Alumni has been very helpful in passing on details of funding opportunities that could be of interest to grantees and we have been circulating this.
