Scottish Investment Fund
The Scottish Investment Fund (SIF) is a £30 million fund provided by the Scottish Government to be delivered in the current spending review period (2008-2011). It aims to build capacity, capability and financial sustainability in the third sector, ensuring a strong and active third sector reaches its potential and makes a key contribution to the national outcomes of the Scottish Government.
In order to achieve this, the fund will support enterprise in the third sector through investment in individual organisations supported by integral business support and management development. It will offer significant investment packages to organisations in order to make a step-change in their capacity, capability and sustainability. It is anticipated that investments will be made in around 60-80 organisations over the period 2008-2011.
