The Wingate Foundation has announced that its Performing Arts (excluding music) grants programme is open for applications. Grants will be made to registered charities under the following headings (applicants can apply under either or both):
- Achieving Excellence: the Trustees place particular emphasis on financial support for charities 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 the usual sources. Assistance will also be considered for training and professional development for creative talent or the technical professions. Funding for stage productions is not available.
- Education and Social Exclusion: the Trustees additionally wish to support arts projects that place a particular emphasis on addressing educational or social exclusion outcomes.
Grant size: £3,000 to £10,000 for up to four years (on average)
Next deadline: 11 April 2018
Application process: Wingate Foundation website
