Also in Charities and Donations:

Grampian Health Board (commonly known as NHS Grampian) Endowment Fund
(Scottish Charity No SCO17296)

What is an Endowment Fund?

NHS Grampian Endowment Fund is a charity recognised by the Inland Revenue and the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator.

All donations received are held in Trust within the Endowment Fund and is used to fund a range of items such as additional amenities for patients and staff, equipment and research.

The Endowment Fund is in addition to, and separate from, the money used by NHS Grampian to provide day-to-day, core health services.

You can support NHS Grampian Endowment Fund by the following methods:

  • donation
  • through JustGiving 
  • gift aid  
  • leaving a legacy or bequest in your will.

You can specify exactly how you wish your donation to be used. For example:

  • research purposes, for example, ovarian cancer
  • to purchase equipment for a particular hospital
  • to benefit patients or staff of a given ward or department

Who can make a donation ?

NHS Grampian can accept and hold within their Endowment Fund donations from individuals, clubs & societies, work groups, companies, or any other organisation.

How will my donation be used ?

If you do not specify the purpose of your donation it will be added to the General Endowment Fund for the benefit of patients and staff of NHS Grampian. Alternatively you can specify exactly how you wish the donation to be used as detailed above.

Over the years, patients have benefited from the purchase of equipment and additional amenities, which were only made possible due to public generosity.
