To celebrate the 25th birthday of Hilton Glasgow, we are holding a special £25,000 Giveaway. The Daily Record and Hilton Glasgow have teamed up with the Foundation to help us to give away a share of this money to charities big and small throughout the Greater Glasgow area.
Running from 5th June to 20th July 2017, local charities, schools and clubs that help children and young people across the metropolitan area have the opportunity to apply for a share of £25,000.
As part of their 25th birthday celebrations, Hilton Glasgow will be hosting a Happy Birthday Ball for the Foundation on Saturday 16th September (more information can be found here). Money raised at the event will support the Giveaway and the work of the Foundation. The Giveaway is aimed at helping those organisations who work hard to improve young lives, often with tight resources. With the support of The Daily Record and the team at the Hilton Glasgow, the local Giveaway panel will identify charities and causes that need our help.
Now in their 11th year, the Giveaways have seen more than £270,000 donated to 277 different local organisations. Outdoor learning, arts and craft materials, travel costs, sports equipment, specialist and crisis counselling, therapy and cancer care, refurbishments and resource packs have all been funded through Giveaways, enabling more than 55,782 young people to benefit directly.
To apply for a share of the £25,000 Giveaway, the following criteria apply:
- You must be a registered charity or non-profit working in the Greater Glasgow area
- Your work must support children and/or young people between the ages of 0-25
- Individual children or families cannot be supported, grants are made to a charity
- Financial accounts must be available to accompany your application
- Your application must be received before the deadline of 5pm on 20th July 2017
