Foundation Scotland - Blackcraig Community Fund


Blackcraig Wind Farm Community Fund is provided by Blackcraig Wind Farm (Scotland) Ltd from its Blackcraig wind farm in Dumfries & Galloway. The purpose of the fund is to support our communities to be connected, resilient and carbon-neutral places, where people will want to live, work and visit, to bring up their families, and to grow old.

The Fund’s current priorities are to:

  • A Connected Community: activity which helps communities to become more connected
  • An Asset Rich Community: activity which aims to make the best use of assets - people, the natural and built environment – and sustaining them for the future
  • An Economically Flourishing Community: activity that maximises the ability to flourish economically
  • A Carbon Neutral Community: activity that supports communities to become carbon neutral
