Please note that the Fund is currently suspended due to the Covid-19 situation.

The Edinburgh Airport Community Fund is managed by the Community Board. They meet quarterly to review funding applications from our local community. The Community Board consists of key representatives from Edinburgh Airport and the local community and they provide independent evaluations of applications.

Charities or community groups associated with members of the Community Board can still apply for funding, but the Community Board member must declare their involvement and withdraw from discussions and the decision-making process.
