Grants Available for UK and International Charitable Projects

Grants are available to registered charities for projects benefitting UK and international needs.

Scott Bader, the global chemical company, provides funds for charitable projects in the UK and internationally through three different programmes.

The charity awards funds in the following:

  • Large Project Funding – grants of up to £25,000. Between two and four large community based environmental or education projects that benefit young or disadvantaged people, anywhere in the world, will be funded.
  • Small International Fund – grants of between £500 and £2,000 for international projects located in the world. Applicants must be UK registered charities.
  • Local Funds – small grants available only to companies within the Scott Bader Group. Each grant supports the work of associated charities, or those situated nearby.

Overseas projects will only be considered from charities that are registered in the UK, or are already known to the Trust.

Previously funded projects include:

  • EDUKAID - £25,000 to build three pre-primary classes in rural Mtwara, Southern Tanzania and to fund a teacher and teaching assistant for each of these, thereby providing a learning environment and the chance of a better life for up to 400 children.
  • Trust for Africa’s Orphans – £25,000 in July 2011 to support 900 poor smallholder women farmers in Northern Uganda trained in sustainable farming, to become the owner, manager, producer and supplier of sunflower seeds thereby improving their income, employment and nutrition.
  • The Prince's Trust - support for NEET young people with the costs of a 12 week Team Programme in Rushden.
  • Tall Ships Youth Trust - provision of three bursaries for disadvantaged/disabled young people from Northamptonshire to develop life skills.
  • The Lowdown - refurbishment of their main youth reception area.

There are no application deadlines for Small or Local Funds. The deadline for Large Grants is 9 February 2018.
