OUR VALUES

We believe in:

Humanity:

We believe that humanity is a universal value that unites people worldwide. Based on this great value, we deliver our humanitarian aid to those in need, whoever and wherever they are

The Board of Trustees, with all the staff and volunteers of Scot Aid, is dedicated to delivering high-quality charity work. We are committed to distributing humanitarian aid on behalf of our loyal donors to our targeted beneficiaries effectively and in time.

Solidarity:

Human solidarity is one of our fundamental values. We believe that human solidarity contributes towards reducing inequality and social injustice.

Transparency:

Scot Aid has a paramount policy, to be honest, and open with our donors, volunteers and supporters about how our charitable work is being carried out. We are obliged to be transparent about our governance, staff, fundraising, donations and how they are being distributed to those in need.

DONATION POLICY

Scot Aid is a transparent charity that is committed to delivering humanitarian funds to the poorest, vulnerable and neediest beneficiaries within areas of operation effectively and as quickly as possible. However, for that to happen we have to spend some funds on administration costs which are necessary for running every charity and non-profit organization.

100% DONATION POLICY

We assure our donors that all restricted and specific donations will be used 100% for the specified purpose/project(s) without any deductions whatsoever.

However, we also urge our donors to support our administration costs as much as they can so that the charity’s work can continue to be as efficient and effective as possible.
