University of St Andrews launches Community Fund

University of St AndrewsThe University of St Andrews has launched a £30,000-a-year Community Fund to support the groups and activities in and around the town of St Andrews.

Organisations and groups from across Fife can apply for support from the University in this difficult time.

Principal Professor Sally Mapstone says, “I am delighted to announce the launch of our University Community Fund which aims to support some of the small voluntary organisations and causes which maintain the fabric of life in our St Andrews community. It is particularly apposite at a time when so many groups and organisations are involved in essential activities to support their communities during the Covid-19 pandemic. I hope the fund will be integral to the recovery of our community and strengthen the relationship between town and gown long beyond the current crisis.”

Although the Fund was conceived before the Covid-19 crisis, the University of St Andrews recognises that key to a community’s recovery and the very fabric of life in communities are the many small voluntary bodies that are responding to the needs of their residents with a will and bravery which must be commended.

The types of projects which are eligible for funding of between £250 and £3,000 include those which: benefit communities in the local area (St Andrews and neighbouring communities); increase engagement between the University and the community; promote knowledge exchange and widening participation; promote environmental sustainability; promote diversity and inclusion; and celebrate St Andrews and the local area’s heritage, whether physical or cultural.
