Founded in 1970, the Mickel Fund, as a funding body, has grown considerably and now donates to a number of different charities every year.
The Mickel Fund donations go a long way in helping to improve the services these funded charities provide and in improving the lives of those whom they help. The Mickel Fund donates the majority percentage of funding to Local Scottish Charities and a percentage to National, International and Global Charity appeals, as well as eligible individuals through the Hardship Donation Scheme.
The fund is available to organisations that work towards on of the following aims:
- Advancement of education
- Prevention or relief of poverty or people otherwise in need due to age, disability, ill health, financial hardship or other reason
- Advancement of health and saving of lives
- Advancement of the arts, heritage, culture or science
- Advancement of public participation in sports
The next deadline for funds is Thursday August 8. You can find out more here: http://www.mickelfund.org.uk/apply-for-funding/
