The society funds individuals who find themselves in a situation of crisis and organisations supporting disadvantaged members of the community.
Each month, money is donated to local charities and worthy causes. The main focus is that the causes are local, and of the kind that tend to be overlooked generally.
The objectives of the Trust are widely drawn. In the past, trustees have split donations amongst military and medical charities, and youth organisations.
The Trust has general charitable interests. In 2022/23 they gave 6 grants to cancer, health, disability and women's aid charities in Scotland and Dundee.
Provides financial assistance to organisations investing in measures aimed at encouraging sustainable travel, such as increasing travel to work by public transport, cycling and walking, low emission vehicles and reducing the need to travel.
The Trust provides financial assistance to UK registered or exempt charities whose activities fall within the following three categories, care of and services for blind people, people with learning disabilities, and people suffering from cancer.
Preference may be given to smaller charities benefiting or assisting young people belonging to, or associated with, the City of Dundee and smaller organisations encouraging medical research and the relief of suffering.
