The main purpose of the Trust is the advancement of religious education and artistic and cultural development in children and young people in Scotland through the use of music, the development of music in worship and the development of the Christian faith.

It is envisaged the Trust’s main activities will be the provision of grants primarily for children and young people to help them find faith or help them in developing their faith and for musical instruments and access to relevant courses and events. The Trust may also make grants to other charitable organisations or individuals whose purposes are similar to their own and may consider the setting up and running of summer schools or such similar training events to specifically promote and advance the purposes of the Trust.

It is intended that the activities of the Trust will run on an ongoing basis throughout the year. The Trust will consider applications for grants from, or on behalf of, children and young people throughout Scotland as well as other UK registered charities. Details of the application process and form can be found in the applications section of the website.

It is envisaged that this will provide a benefit to the public as it will allow individuals (and primarily children and young people in Scotland) to benefit both directly (as a result of direct grants from the Trust) and indirectly (through other UK charities with similar purposes) from the Trust funds.

The Angela Lynsey Macdonald Trust is a charity registered in Scotland through OSCR, the Scottish Charity Regulator. Details of our registration can be found here.
