National Lottery Open Fund for Organisations

The National Lottery Open Fund for Organisations is an update of the Open Fund: Sustaining Creative Development Fund which Creative Scotland administered between 2020 and early 2023.

The fund aims to continue to support organisations who seek funding to undertake creative activity such as a specific project or production, a programme of creative work, or a period of research and development.

The fund can also support business change and development projects, such as those that make the organisation more financially sustainable or focus on broader organisational development.

All applicants are required to consider the six key funding criteria when making their application. For further information on these criteria, why they are important and the outcomes they will help to contribute towards, visit the Funding Criteria page.
