The Mickel Fund ‘a registered Scottish family owned Charity’ is a charity run by Trustees who are, in the majority, relatives and descendants of the late D W Mickel and other trustees. The Charity was founded on 14th May 1970 by Deed of Trust and is funded currently by investments. The charity was originally set up to assist hardship cases within Mactaggart & Mickel Ltd, with the original start up funding being provided by Douglas Mickel and later upon his death substantially added to by his wife Marjorie. During the past 10 years we have gifted £729,831 to a number of charities. Over the years the criteria for granting donations has been redefined and currently we donate approximately £100,000 annually.
The charity aims to gift all its income on a year by year basis to charities operating predominantly in Scotland, The charity also owns two properties in Edinburgh which it allows the Rock Trust to use, rent free, to provide accommodation for young homeless people
The Rock Trust is a charity that works in Edinburgh and West Lothian with homeless and socially excluded young people between the ages of 16 and 25 years. The Trust’s aim is to provide opportunities for young people to develop the personal, social and practical skills, as well as the sense of self worth necessary for independent adult life.
