ABZ Propeller Fund looks to help get projects off the ground
Aberdeen International Airport is on the lookout for charities, community groups and organisations to benefit from the ABZ Propeller Fund.
Previously known as the Aberdeen International Airport Community Fund, £25,000 has been made available to donate to worthy recipients.
The ABZ Propeller Fund is open to groups, charities, and organisations with links to education, sustainability, and economic regeneration.
In 2019 more than £22,000 was donated to 20 applicants including VSA, Cyrenians and 30th Aberdeen Guides.
Aberdeen International Airport was unable to award any funding during 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Bruce Watson, chairman of the ABZ Propeller Fund at Aberdeen International Airport, said: “The ABZ Propeller Fund is a great way for community groups, charities and organisations to get help with funding and get their project off the ground.
“We encourage groups with a focus on young people, sustainability or that make a tangible and real difference in their local communities to consider applying for funding.
“Everyone is aware what happened to the aviation industry during the pandemic and we took the difficult decision to pause the community fund for 2020.
“However, we are delighted to be relaunching with a new name for our group, the ABZ Propeller Fund.
“We are an important company in the Aberdeen city and shire region and are looking to back as many organisations as we can.”
Members of the ABZ Propeller Fund include airport staff, as well as representatives from the local authorities and government.
