'What We Do' - Internationally
Regularly updated to keep you informed
We dedicate a proportion of the money we receive each year as donations from the public to charities operating internationally. The proportion varies according to perceived priorities but it averages between 30% and 40% of the total received
Our policy is to direct our contributions particularly to small independent charities with a Scottish connection where our contribution can make a difference.
For information on the charities supported in 2012-13 see 'Related Pages and CLICK on the headings for a description of the charity and the sum donated.
All of the money received from the public goes wholly to our selected charities. There are no administrative costs.
