Funding: The Wingate Foundation

Wingate-Foundation

The Wingate Foundation has announced that the next closing date for applications to its Music Grants programme is the 26 June 2017.

The Music Grants programme supports 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 given to those organisations which give opportunities to young professionals and to education projects for young people as well as for new adult audiences. This would include direct assistance as well as funding for organisations which promote their work or performance, and support for Master Classes.

Previous projects supported include:

  • The National Children’s Orchestra which received a grant of £15,000 per year for three years to give musically talented children under the age of 14 the opportunity of playing together in full, age-banded symphony orchestras and
  • The Drake Music Project which received a grant of £10,000 to address the imbalance in music provision for disabled people by delivering a range of music technology driven projects.
