Our funding model

The Essentia Foundation’s operating model is not to deal directly with applicants for submissions, but to work in partnership with Foundation Scotland, who act as our agent in making calls for applications. Foundation Scotland also carries out the due diligence assessments and ongoing monitoring and reporting of the outputs and impacts for the fund.

One of the main reasons Essentia uses this model is because, at present, we have no employees and a small number of non-executive trustees who have a range of additional commitments. The trustees, together with Foundation Scotland, undertake a review and approve process for applications twice a year.
