Community Fund

Our University Community Fund enables the University to listen to ideas, adapt to local needs, and provide financial support to deliver real benefits for the wider community. 

The Community Fund accepts applications for grants between £250 and £3000, including those which: 

  • benefit communities in the local area
  • increase engagement between the University and the community
  • promote knowledge exchange and widening participation
  • promote environmental sustainability
  • promote diversity and inclusion
  • celebrate the local area’s heritage, whether physical or cultural

The University contributes £30,000 per year, but donations from private donors have substantially extended the reach of the Fund.  This demonstrates the connection that alumni and supporters feel not only with the University, but also with the town and its wider community. Since its launch in 2020, the Community Fund has supported more than 120 Fife-based groups, covering a wide range of local projects. To date, the fund has supported projects to the cumulative total of £230,000.
