The Crichton estate was bought by Dumfries and Galloway Council in 1995 and leased to the Crichton Trust, a company limited by guarantee with charitable status. Since then the nationally important conservation estate has been redeveloped by the Trust’s subsidiary, the Crichton Development Company, which carries out the day to day running of the estate. The Foundation works closely with both the Trust and the Development Company.
The Foundation is represented on the Crichton Campus Leadership Group (CCLG) and works collaboratively with the other institutions including Dumfries and Galloway College, University of Glasgow, University of West Of Scotland, the Open University in Scotland, Crichton Carbon Centre and Scotland’s Rural College, Crichton Trust and Crichton Development Company.
The Foundation welcomes applications for capital and revenue grants from the academic institutions, student associations or regeneration campus partners. Applications that involve collaborative work between institutions are particularly encouraged.
Applications must be submitted using the Campus Partner Funding Application form and applicants are welcome to contact the Foundation for guidance on completing the form. Applications can be made at any time during the academic year and are assessed at the next meeting of the Awards and Grants Committee.
