The FlightPath Fund is now accepting applications for 2023

We take great pride in the active role we play in supporting the communities near the airport and are delighted to report that hundreds of community groups and charities have benefited from our funding programme, the Glasgow Airport FlightPath Fund.

Established in 2010, the FlightPath Fund was set up with the sole intention of providing financial support to charities and community groups committed to improving the facilities and services available to local people.

Since launching, the total sum granted to over 750 projects and activities has amounted to almost £1,700,000.

The Glasgow Airport FlightPath Fund is designed to ensure the communities surrounding the airport share in its success. The FlightPath supports community groups and charities in Renfrewshire, Glasgow North West and East and West Dunbartonshire.

The FlightPath Fund's Committee meets between five and six times per year to discuss awards and 2023's dates will be updated shortly. Applications should be submitted no later than three weeks prior to the next meeting and are available to download below along with our guidelines:

Please note for the first meeting in February we will accept applications up to two weeks prior rather than three. All other meetings will revert to the three-week minimum submission cut off for applications.

The 2023 meeting dates for the FlightPath Fund committee are as follows:

- 3 February
- 24 March
- 16 June
- 1 September
- 3 November
- 8 December

A valid bank statement and proof of bank details is required in order that an award payment can be made. These must be supplied within 30 working days of the receipt of the award letter or email sent by the Fund’s administration team. Failure to do so will result in the award being rescinded.

Funding awards will continue to focus on three key areas:

Employment - We recognise the importance of making sure the future workplace is equipped with the skills that society and industry demands and, by supporting specific projects, we aim to help young people in the community reach their full potential. Awards will be given to exciting local projects that can break down barriers to employment through skills development.

Environment - To underpin our commitment to making a positive contribution to the environment, the FlightPath Fund supports projects with a focus on protecting and enhancing our natural environment.

The FlightPath Fund supports social and educational projects which are designed to bring positive benefits and to change the lives of people in the communities we serve.

Application forms can be downloaded below and returned via email only to flightpath@glasgowairport.com.

The committee meets under the chairmanship of accountant Archie Hunter, who brings considerable financial expertise to the role with previous positions including senior partner for KPMG (Scotland) and past president of the Institute of Chartered Accountants.

To ensure the funding targets communities near the airport, the FlightPath committee consists of independent elected representatives from Renfrewshire, Glasgow, and East and West Dunbartonshire councils.

Members of the committee from left to right: Chair Archie Hunter, Councillor Iain Nicolson, Renfrewshire Council, Councillor June McKay, West Dunbartonshire Council, Councillor Calum Smith, East Dunbartonshire Council, Councillor Anne McTaggart, Glasgow City Council, Councillor Sam Mullin, Renfrewshire Council.
