Get a Grip on Grants: Discussion and a step by step guide to GCHT’s grant programme

Support us

Like many other charities, the coronavirus outbreak is having a major impact on our activities, threatening our crucial work to protect, repair and celebrate Glasgow’s rich built heritage. As a result, we expect to lose an important part of our income this year.

We are therefore asking that if you are able to support our conservation and outreach work,
please consider donating to the Trust.

Do you have a project in mind but are not sure if it would be eligible?
