Our Aims
We are charged with making grants, donations or gifts to individuals and organisations who share our ambitions. Our key focus areas for supporting artists are:

  • Funded residencies in the artist studios at Marchmont House.
  • Selected support within the creativity community in the Scottish Borders.
We are currently exploring partnerships with Visual Arts Scotland and The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland amongst others, but we are keen to establish links with charities using creativity to further their cause within the Scottish Borders and welcome approaches from like-minded organisations.

We will seek open calls for our residency opportunities at Marchmont House, which are currently our main focus.

We have a limited annual budget and so cannot assure you of support, but we hope to grow in our funds to deploy in coming years, both through corporate partnerships and through our own resources.

To hear about opportunities to apply for, please sign up to their newsletter.

If you wish to contact us directly about support, please use the contact form below. Each opportunity will be considered on its merits by the Trustees on a quarterly basis using these criteria that need to be demonstrated:

Persuasion – Inspiration – Purpose

Our ultimate goal, as part of the Marchmont family, is to support sustainable creativity, so we also value entrepreneurial flair and the ability for the individuals and enterprises we support to stand on their own two feet.
