Supporting Scotland’s vibrant voluntary sector

Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations

The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations is the membership organisation for Scotland's charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises. Charity registered in Scotland SC003558. Registered office Mansfield Traquair Centre, 15 Mansfield Place, Edinburgh EH3 6BB.


The Dunard Fund seeks to promote and advance the arts in Scotland, and makes donations principally for:

  • the performance of classical music at the highest standard
  • the education and display of visual arts at an international standard
  • the rehabilitation of endangered architectural masterpieces and the design and construction of new architectural masterpieces.

The trustees usually dedicate a very small percentage of the fund each year to certain environmental and other projects.

As a matter of general policy, the trustees prefer to engage with recipients to enable long-term development of projects and initiatives which have major and lasting significance. They are therefore less inclined to provide one-off donations.
