The Mary Salmond Trust

Supporting groups & individuals in the North East of Scotland.

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.
