The OneCity Trust 

The Lord Provost and Trustees work hard to secure various community benefit partnerships which, with their financial or pro-bono support now provides 46% of the Trusts income.

The remaining 54% of income is generated through investments, donations, charity partners and fundraising activities, which we rely on local organisations and supporters of the OneCity Trust to support.

Please see details below for our forthcoming fundraising activities and feel free to book tickets and join us!  All funds raised are used by the Trust for grant making opportunities to charities and incorporated organisations within the City of Edinburgh
