Our Funders

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 NatureScot 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 to advocate for a sustainable Scotland.

We are grateful to the following charitable trusts for unrestricted funding – the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, the William Grant Foundation and the Craignish Trust.

People’s Postcode Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Our organisation received a grant from the Trust to continue with our activities.
