The Trust operates by giving grants to organisations and, less frequently, to individuals. The charitable object is the advancement of education for the public benefit. The Trustees have interpreted that as enabling them to support other charities working to help the education and development of young people, other organisations which carry out similar functions and individuals who need assistance with courses.
Grants have tended to be for equipment and project costs or for bursaries. Salary costs have rarely been met to date, but these could be met in the future for an appropriate project.
Priority has been given to North East Fife and surrounding areas, but projects have been helped throughout Scotland.
