Glasgow Airport Flightpath Fund
The Glasgow Airport FlightPath Fund focuses its community investment in several areas including education, the environment, economic regeneration and employment.
In 2011, more than 60 local charities and community groups received more than £170,000 in donations from the funding programme.
The FlightPath Fund is designed to ensure the communities surrounding the airport share in its success and community groups and charities in Renfrewshire, Glasgow and East and West Dunbartonshire are all eligible to apply for funding.
To ensure the funding targets communities near the airport, the FlightPath board consists of independent representatives from Renfrewshire, Glasgow, and East and West Dunbartonshire Councils.
The committee also has representation from Glasgow Airport and the The Communities Trust, the airport owner’s grant-making charity and Scottish Business in the Community.
The board meets every two months under the chairmanship of accountant Archie Hunter, a former senior partner for KPMG (Scotland) and past president of the Institute of Chartered Accountants.
