In line with its objective to promote and advance the arts in Scotland, Dunard Fund makes donations principally for:
- the training and performance of classical music at the highest standard,
- the education and display of visual arts at an international standard, and
- the rehabilitation of endangered architectural masterpieces and the design and construction of new architectural masterpieces.
As a matter of general policy, Dunard Fund prefers to engage with beneficiaries to establish long-term development of projects and initiatives which have major and lasting significance. Owing to significant existing commitments towards two large projects in particular, Dunard Fund is currently concentrating on prioritising these, whilst also maintaining existing relationships.
