Areas of low cultural engagement

The Allen Lane Foundation

We are interested in funding charitable causes which we believe to be unpopular both in society, and with other funders. Our focus is currently on adults within eight beneficiary groups:
• Asylum seekers and refugees*
• Gypsies and Travellers
• LGBTQ communities
• Migrant communities*
• Offenders and ex-offenders
• Older people
• People experiencing mental health problems
• People experiencing violence or abuse
* We do not fund organisations working with single nationalities

Eden - Leisure Fund Grant for Organisations

The Leisure Fund Grant scheme is provided and administered by Eden District Council. Funding is intended for local not-for-profit clubs, groups and organisations and can be used for a wide variety of leisure projects.

Small grants are available to local community groups for capital and revenue costs associated with projects that support and improve sports, arts and other leisure activities in the district.

Hinrichsen Foundation

The Hinrichsen Foundation was founded in 1976 by Mrs Carla Eddy Hinrichsen to ensure the continuation of the tradition of supporting contemporary music established by the Hinrichsen family as the proprietors of Edition Peters the music publishers, established more than 200 years ago in the German city of Leipzig.
