Generation Arts is an autonomous, registered Scottish Charity, and is funded annually from a range of Trusts, Foundations and other public bodies. We are a not for profit organisation. Our projects are free to participate in. Many attendees of our community classes choose to make a weekly donation to help towards the costs of tutors and venue hire. We are deeply grateful to those who regualrly support these classes.

With grateful thanks we acknowledge all our past and current funders – Foundation Scotland, The Bank of Scotland, Corra Foundation, Big Lottery, Co-op, West Lothian Council, Robertson Trust, Creative Scotland, Henry Duncan Trust, Awards for All and The Covenant Fund. And of course the participants in our weekly community classes, whose weekly fee goes some way to keep our work in care homes and sheltered housing free to all residents.

If you would like to support us in the work that we do – perhaps you know an older person in care, or are ‘paying it forward’ – there are two simple ways to help us to raise the money we need. We have found that for people in care, those at the very end of their lives, money is hard to come by. We’re not sure why, because putting a smile on a face, to us, is priceless.

You can send a donation by Paypal to @generationarts or by cheque to us at Craigsfarm Community Hub, Maree Walk, Livingston, EH54 5BP. 100% of our income goes towards arts activities in elderly care services and facilities across West Lothian.
