The Main Grants Programme is open to registered charities (local authority cultural organisations are also eligible to apply). It should be noted that the majority of support is directed towards the cultural sector, and in particular to cultural learning and to museum, gallery, heritage and performing arts learning spaces.
The Foundation only very occasionally makes donations to the health and social care sectors. Support for enhancing Jewish life is largely directed towards JW3.
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.
