The Main Grants Programme is open to UK registered charities (local authority cultural organisations are also eligible to apply).
It should be noted that the majority of support is for the performing and visual arts, culture and heritage, with a particular interest in engaging children and young people with art and culture.
Some grants are also made in support of enhancing Jewish life and occasionally to the health and social care sectors.
The Foundation does not fund projects retrospectively and will not accept (or respond to) applications from the following:
- General appeals and circulars
- Projects outside the UK.
It should also be noted that the following are very rarely funded:
- Staff posts
- Local branches of national charities
- Academic or project research
- Conference costs
Please also read the Frequently Asked Questions before submitting your application.
Applicants seeking funding for learning spaces are advised to read the additional guidance here.
