Foyle Foundation Arts and Learning Grants

Posted in Funding

The Foyle Foundation is an independent grantmaking trust that distributes grants to UK charities. The Foundation does not support applications from individuals.

Arts Strand

Designed to improve the sustainability of the arts and support groups which work to achieve this. Generally, funding is for specific projects/activities that offer long-term benefit and sustainability.

Typical areas of support include:

  • Helping to make the arts more accessible by developing new and more diverse audiences
  • Encouraging new work and supporting young and emerging artists; skilled freelancers and independent practitioners
  • Projects that encourage sustainability by reducing overheads or which help generate additional revenue.  This might include environmental improvements to save energy and lower carbon emissions where a cost benefit can be demonstrated.

Learning Strand

Designed to support projects that facilitate the acquisition of knowledge such as through increased access to places of learning (eg museums and libraries) and which have a long-term strategic impact.

Key areas for support are:

  • Libraries, museums and archives;
  • Special educational needs;
  • Projects that encourage sustainability by reducing overheads or which help generate additional revenue.  This might include environmental improvements to save energy and lower carbon emissions where a cost benefit can be demonstrated;
  • Projects and activities which increase access and widen the diversity of attenders/visitors.

Applications are accepted from UK organisations with charitable status and a core remit of arts or learning. This includes registered charities, charitable incorporated organisations (CIOs), excepted charities and exempt charities.
