Membership subscriptions from LINK member organisations are the single biggest source of LINK’s funding. Subscriptions from Organisational Supporters also help fund core activities
Grants from Scottish Natural Heritage and the Scottish Government provide core funding to support LINK to act as an intermediary body that co-ordinates, supports and strengthens the voice of the citizen-led environment NGO sector through provision of a forum that shares information, discusses issues affecting the environment and works together where possible to advocate for a sustainable Scotland.
Several charitable Trusts support LINK’s core functions, including the Craignish Trust.
LINK’s Marine project is grateful to the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation for its long term support of this project which ended in 2016 and to the John Ellerman Foundation which also contributed to the end of 2016. Funding from WWF Scotland currently supports employment of two project officers who work to LINK’s Marine Group.
The Friends Provident Foundation supports a LINK project from January 2014 – Flourishing Scotland. The funding supports employment of a 3-day week project officer working to LINK’s Economics Group.
Historic Environment Scotland provides some sponsorship annually for Scottish Environment Week/Festival held in and around the Scottish Parliament, with further additional funding sought each year.
We are delighted to have been awarded the Yorkshire and Clydesdale Bank Foundation Spirit of the Community Award for Environment, in June 2016, for the Species Champions initiative. The funding supports a 2 day week intern post at Buglife, working to the Wildlife Subgroup.
Donations are always very welcome and can be given via the Charity Choice website, or sent direct to Scottish Environment LINK, 2 Grosvenor House, Shore Road, Perth PH2 8BD.
