What we are doing

Glasgow Eco Trust is aiming to raise £23,000 in 2023 with our #GET23in23 fundraising appeal to support community-led climate action.

And you have the power to help.

Why we are doing it

In January 2023 we were informed that we were unsuccessful with our funding application to the Glasgow City Council Glasgow Communities Fund. This was hugely disappointing news as we felt we had prepared a high quality application that offered good value for money and, more importantly, delivered for the people and communities we work with. Read more here.

Applying for funding is an ongoing process. We are waiting to hear about several other applications and are preparing more applications as well. We have worked hard over the past decade to reduce our dependence on any one particular funder as well as to diversify our income streams.

However, we still  need to raise funds in the next few months to ensure we can continue to deliver community led climate action, which we feel is more needed than ever before.

So we are launching our #GET23in23 fundraising campaign where we aim to raise at least £23,000 in 2023 from support from individuals and individual fundraising activity.

We appreciate that this a very challenging time for many people, families and local businesses with the cost of living crisis and increasing energy and food bills.

Any support you are able to provide is very much appreciated. Thank you.


Our fundraising thermometer is up to date as at the end of November we have raised £17,499 - 76% towards our target!

9 Deposit return scheme

ON HOLD - not sure until when! This new Scottish Government scheme was due to launch on the 16 August 2023 but has been delayed. People pay a small deposit of 20p when they buy a drink in a single-use container and then get the deposit back when they return the empty bottle or can. And you could support us by donating your deposit to Glasgow Eco Trust!

10 And more

We will be doing various other things throughout the year including raffles, film screenings and talks as well as taking part in Giving Tuesday in November - watch this space for more details!
