Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation
Trustess meet four time per year January, April, July and October. See website for specific deadlines.
The Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation considers grant applications from charitable organisations working in a number of areas, including the performing arts and music. The Trustees meet quarterly to decide grant allocation.
Performing arts (excluding music)
The Foundation has been a consistent supporter of the performing arts. The Trustees intend to maintain that policy with particular emphasis on financial support for not-for-profit companies with a record of artistic excellence that require additional funding, not available from public sources or commercial sponsorship, to broaden their repertoire or develop work of potentially outstanding interest which cannot be funded from usual sources. Assistance will also be considered for training and professional development for creative talent or the technical professions.
The Trustees recognise that music is seriously under-funded in the UK and will consider applications for support in those areas of music performance and education which do not readily attract backing from commercial sponsors or other funding bodies, or which are not eligible for public funding. Priority will be directed towards supporting the work or education of musicians based in, or wishing to study in, the UK, but by no means exclusively so. An important criterion will be whether, in the opinion of the Trustees, the funding sought will make a significant difference to the applicant’s prospects.
The Foundation does not have an application form. Applications in writing only to Karen Marshall, Administrator, Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation, 2nd Floor, 20-22 Stukeley Street, London WC2B 5LR. Visit www.wingatefoundation.org.uk for more information.
