Funding: The Grocers’ Charity Memorial Grants

The Grocers’ Charity Memorial Grants typically provides one-off grants up to £5,000 for UK registered charities working in Heritage & The Arts. Other areas supported are: Relief of Poverty & Children and Young People, The Elderly, Disability, Health, Military and the Environment. There is a two-stage application process and quarterly deadlines each year. Deadlines for an initial enquiry are 10 September, 14 November, 10 January and 9 March.

Funding priorities for heritage are:

  • Conservation of historic buildings (not Places of Worship which is covered elsewhere)
  • Conservation of historic objects and paintings

Funding priorities for the arts are:

  • Engaging with marginalised audiences, e.g. disabled, BAME, people living below the minimum poverty threshold for the appreciation of arts, performances or exhibitions
  • Opportunities, education and skills development of creative talent for artists with financing challenges or disability support requirements
