We cannot fund projects that are completed by the time of our decision.

Before applying for a grant:

It is important that you read our Funding Guidelines before applying and these can be downloaded here.  These guidelines will help you see if your organisation and project are eligible, and also include information on organisations and projects we cannot fund.

We can only fund projects from organisations that are UK Registered Charities, some UK Publicly Exempt Charities and Churches that are Excepted Charities. Full information on the types of charitable status is in the Funding Guidelines

Your project also needs to be within one of our two programmes: Arts: Nurturing Young Professionals or Conservation: Objects and Works of Art.

We also suggest you read our Frequently Asked Questions section before applying.
