Your guidelines sometimes require 10% as a cash contribution – what can this include?

Cash contributions can include:...

Cash contributions can include:

  • Earned income from your activity, for example ticket sales, book sales and fees charged.
  • Funding from public organisations such as local authorities and local enterprise companies.
  • Investment from trusts and foundations.
  • A contribution from your own organisation.


Cash contributions do not include:

  • Money from other Creative Scotland funding, including Foundation funding, Flexible funding and Annual Client funding. Organisations who receive funding in this way must be able to show that this funding will not be invested in the project they are applying for.
  • Funding from other funds which Creative Scotland has devolved to other agencies to administer. Because Creative Scotland supports these initiatives and provides the funding, then this would represent ‘double funding’ and would therefore not be acceptable as partnership funding.
