The Mary Salmond Trust

The Trust offers grants of up to £500 to groups or individuals from the North East of Scotland. We aim to support the advancement of community development, by encouraging activities which have a public benefit. We are also keen to promote projects which focus on children and young people’s health and welfare, training and education, civic responsibility and volunteering.
