Deadline 19th April
The Leche Trust’s main grants programme supports projects in two areas: performing arts and conservation. Trustees will consider grants up to £5,000.
Applicants must be UK registered charities, public authorities or public institutions. We do not accept applications from Community Interest Companies (CICs) or individuals (except overseas PhD students – see separate guidance).
Organisations that have already received a grant will not normally be considered for a further grant until 24 months have elapsed since the date of the meeting at which the previous grant was awarded.
The Trustees’ priorities for music, theatre and dance are:
- excellence in professional performance
- new work, and
- development of young, professional artists aged 18 or over.
The Trustees support projects to conserve historic objects, collections and features of buildings and landscapes which date from the Georgian period or earlier, i.e. pre-1830s.
Projects may include acquisition costs (for objects) and conservation surveys as well as remedial work. Trustees are inclined to give grants to smaller projects, or specific elements of projects, where their contribution can make a greater impact.
In the case of churches, Trustees will consider supporting the conservation of such features as monuments, wall paintings, stained glass, and historic furniture and fittings.
