Garfield Weston

We are pleased to announce that the Foundation is finalising details for the one-off Weston Culture Fund which will launch on the 5th October.

This £25 million fund is designed to support mid to large scale cultural organisations in the UK to help them restart work, re-engage with audiences, adapt to changed circumstances and generate revenue. The fund is specifically for charitable organisations with a pre-Covid regular annual income of £500,000 or greater; smaller organisations will be able to apply for our regular grants programme via our website as usual.

We are currently finalising the details and will launch the Weston Culture Fund via our website and Twitter on the 5th October.

Closing date for applications will be 9th November and decisions will be announced by the end of January 2021.

The Foyle Foundation: grants

The Foyle Foundation, which is one of the UK’s largest grant making charity, has announced that its Main Grants Programme has re-opened for applications to support charities with a core remit of the Arts or Learning. In light of the uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Foundation has revised its criteria and will change to make one-year grants only (no multi-year grants) to charities that can demonstrate ongoing financial stability for the next 12 months from the date of their application.
