“SPREADING A LITTLE FERTILISER”

The Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation supports a wide range of causes across the North of Scotland. The Foundation was founded to “spread a little fertiliser” in local communities, and that means supporting good causes across a broad range of themes and activity.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN COMMUNITIES

The Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation’s mission is to help make a real difference in local communities. The Foundation’s Trustees meet regularly to consider applications for support from across across the North East of Scotland and the Highlands and Islands which demonstrate a positive and lasting impact for people living locally.

ARE YOU MAKING A DIFFERENCE?

The Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation is open to applications for financial support from good causes. We have produced a handy guide to help you draft and submit a standout application. Please visit our guide before submitting your request for assistance.

OUR STORY

The Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation supports good causes thanks to the legacy of its entrepreneurial founders. Gordon and Ena built Baxters into a global brand, and decided to ‘spread a little fertiliser’ in their local community. Today, the Foundation supports a huge variety of causes with the support of a board of dedicated trustees. We meet regularly throughout the year to consider applications large and small, putting Gordon and Ena’s legacy to good use.
