Deadline 12th September
This is run by the Museums Association and funds projects which develop collections to achieve social impact.
The Fund started in 2011 and 90 projects have so far received grants totalling £6.7m in 14 funding rounds. Between 2017 and 2019 it is offering a total of £3.5m in grants, as well as providing events and resources for the whole sector.
Museums, galleries and heritage organisations from across the UK can apply for a grant of between £20,000 and £120,000 for a project lasting up to three years.
There are two application rounds each year in March and September, with a short initial application form.
Shortlisted applicants are then invited to make a full application. The guidance for applicants has changed substantially, and all potential applicants should read it carefully before applying.
