Established in 2007,we are a pioneering venture philanthropy organisation based in Scotland. Our unique and rigorous approach brings money, skills and tailored developed support to unlock the greatest possible social impact and change lives.
Our model is simple.
We raise funding and invest it in a selected portfolio of charitable ventures. Rigorous performance monitoring ensures we achieve maximum social return,the same approach as any commercial investment fund.
We build strategic long-term partnerships with the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
We help to transform charities and their capacity to change lives in a way grant-giving alone can’t.
The Pro Bono Programme
The provision of advice and expertise to help charities become stronger and sustainable is very important to our investment model. Scotland’s business community plays a key role in this work – volunteering time, skills and expertise
