Community Fund


The Al-Maktoum College Community Fund has been supporting community groups and charities in Dundee and the surrounding area since its formation in 2009. Its impact has been considerable, with more than £120,000 granted over the years to those who have sought financial assistance. The Fund has helped charities in various sectors, including residents’ associations, schools’ groups, sports’ clubs, youth groups, senior citizen organisations and more. Without this funding, many applicants might not otherwise have been able to fulfil their objectives. We look forward to offering continuing support to the local community in this way.
