The deadline for the Glasgow giveaway has now passed – please do not submit an application.
The Glasgow Evening Times and Glasgow Hilton teamed up with the Foundation to help us to give away £10,000 to charities big and small throughout the Glasgow area.
Running from 24th August to 18th September 2015 at midnight (extended from 4th), local charities, schools and clubs that help children across the metropolitan area had the opportunity to apply for a share of £10,000.
The money was raised by our big-hearted Foundation supporters in Glasgow. The Giveaway is aimed at helping those organisations who work hard to improve young lives, often with tight resources. With the help of the Glasgow Evening News and the team at the Glasgow Hilton, the Foundation will be able to identify local charities and causes that need our help.
Now in their 7th year, the Giveaways have seen more than £211,000 donated to 205 different local organisations. Outdoor learning, arts and crafts materials, travel costs, sports equipment, specialist and crisis counselling, therapy and cancer care, refurbishments and resource packs have all be funded through Giveaways, enabling more than 38,543 young people to benefit directly.
