Foyle Foundation - Main Grants Scheme


The Foundation supports charities registered in the United Kingdom, the dominant purpose of which is to benefit either the Arts or Learning. Arts projects should make a strong artistic case for support in performing or visual arts by: helping make arts more accessible, encouraging new work and improving arts venues. Learning projects should have a long term strategic impact. Key areas for support are libraries, museums and archives, special education needs and increasing access to learning.
