Common Good Fund
Fintry Common Good Fund
The Fintry Development Trust (FDT) has agreed to give a grant to the Fintry Community Council which can be used to benefit groups within the Fintry Community Council area as defined by Stirling Council. The money is provided from the net earnings FDT receives under its profit sharing agreement with Earlsburn Wind Energy Limited for the turbine at Earlsburn Windfarm.
The grant will be made approximately every 6 months and the amount will vary subject to the earnings made by FDT for that period.
Who can apply for the fund?
Any group of individuals (official or unofficial) resident within the Fintry Community Council area as defined by Stirling Council.
What type of activities could receive funding?
The FCC will consider any application.
Projects unlikely to be approved are those that:
- Promote the views of specific political or religious groups
- Are already funded by the public sector
- Are against the interests of energy conservation, energy efficiency or renewable energy
- Are against the interests of FDT
