he Jimmy Reid Foundation was established in 2011 by the Scottish Left Review, the political magazine which was Jimmy’s last major political project.
The Foundation is an independent ‘think tank’, not affiliated to any political party or organisation but works closely with anyone interested in a more progressive future for Scotland. By making strenuous efforts to maintain party political neutrality the Foundation aims to offer a home for all people of the left in Scotland.
The Foundation is based around a work programme which is set and overseen by a Project Board. The Project Board is made up of leading Scottish thinkers in their area and is intentionally non-party political. A list of the current members of the Project Board can be found below.
But the Foundation is not a ‘closed shop’; in everything we do we will try as far as possible to make our work and its development open to debate and discussion with anyone who is interested and feels they have something to add.
The Foundation is funded through donations. The vast majority of those both by number and by value are from ordinary people who want to see the Foundation succeed. But we also receive donations from organisations such as trade unions, campaigning groups and charitable trusts. The Foundation will not accept any donation which would be likely to compromise its independence in any way.
