Foundation Scotland's Investing in Enterprise fund offers blended grant and loan investment to social enterprises, community organisations and charities working across Scotland.
The fund can invest between £10,000 and £250,000 per organisation; up to 25% (£62,500 based on a £250,000 investment) of this can be in the form of a non-repayable grant and the remainder a repayable loan.
The investment can be used for:
- Working capital
- Acquisition of assets
- Business growth
- Capital expenditure
Most importantly, the fund is designed to allow you to meet the needs of your business, achieve your vision and secure your future.
We assess your proposed social impacts and ability to repay loan debt. Loans are repayable over up to ten years and are charged at a fixed interest rate of 6%.
