About Jimmie Cairncross Charitable Trust

The Jimmie Cairncross Charitable Trust is a registered Scottish Charity (SC018797) based in Perth. It was founded by well-known jeweller Jimmie Cairncross for the benefit of the people of Perth.

The objective of the Trust is to support a wide range of projects in and around the city of Perth, which the Trustees feel are beneficial to the local people.

Applications from charitable activities associated with music, education, the arts and sport are encouraged as well as those which improve lives and support communities or are inspired by the interests of Jimmie Cairncross.

Applications for funding are invited from individuals and organisations, however applications for core funding, employment costs and general annual costs are unlikely to be considered.

The Trust is run by a board of Trustees who meet regularly throughout the year.
