The Golsoncott Foundation aims to promote, maintain, improve and advance the education of the UK public in the arts generally and, in particular, the fine arts and music.
- Maximum Value:
- £ 5,000
Grants vary according to context and are not subject to an inflexible limit, but they are unlikely to exceed £5,000 and are normally given on a non-recurrent basis.
The Golsoncott Foundation Grant is provided and administered by the Golsoncott Foundation and is for voluntary sector organisations in the UK.
The scheme is intended to support projects that promote fine arts and music.
The scheme aims to improve public education through the arts.
In particular, the programme wishes to fund projects for young people and initiatives that attract new audiences.
Individuals and organisations with an arts-related project in the UK can apply for funding.
The Trustees’ overriding concern is to support those projects that demonstrate and deliver excellence in the arts, be it in performance, exhibition, artistic craft, or scholarly endeavour.
Priority is given to applications that focus upon the perfection or promotion of the art in question. Additionally for those applications involving young people the trustees look to a long-lasting connection between them and the art form, one which aims at a significant level of participation and achievement, rather than projects that offer little scope for further involvement.
Applications from individuals and students seeking funding for academic or vocational courses are not admitted, though applications from organisations for bursaries are. Capital appeals from museums, galleries, theatres, arts complexes and schools are not encouraged.
Applicants must submit a proposal in writing and include copies of their latest accounts.
Contact the Golsoncott Foundation for further information.
The annual deadlines for applications are: 31 January; 30 April; 31 July; and 31 October.
