MfA really know first-hand what an amazing affect making music can have on people’s lives. They see everything from disadvantaged young people blossoming at school through to older adults discovering music sometimes for the first time, much later on in life. In their view, EVERYONE should have the opportunity to learn to play music. Sadly, many people are not fortunate enough to have access to musical instruments or ways to help them to learn and discover. This is where MfA come in.
Funding is provided by Bassetlaw District Council. Each District Councillor is allocated a small budget for activities within their electoral ward.
The Fund aims to provide general grant support to the community that will benefit the socio-economic culture and environment of Bassetlaw.
The Santander Foundation has three grants programmes to help disadvantaged people in the UK:
The Tudor Trust is an independent grant-making charitable trust which supports organisations working in any part of the UK. They fund a wide range of people and organisations working to build stronger communities. They don’t have specific funding programmes designed to advance a particular agenda as they think that the groups we support are best placed to identify problems and develop solutions.
Through its Small Grants Programme, grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 are available to smaller charities in the UK (those with an annual turnover of under £100,000), especially those working at grass roots and local community level, in any field, across a wide range of activities. Applicants will need to demonstrate that the grant will make a significant difference to their work.
Please note that demonstrating ongoing sustainability is also important, particularly if you have recently lost local authority or other regular funding. No multi-year funding awards will be made.
The foundation offers grants to CIOs and charities in areas including the arts, supporting a wide range of charitable activities, aiming to be responsive where the need is greatest.
The common themes of charities and projects offered funding are charities that demonstrate quality and excellence with projects that have clear outcomes and benefits, sound leadership and sensible business plans. Grants are not awarded for one-off events (e.g. festivals).
The Wingate Foundation grant scheme is intended to support organisations that provide education, resources or performance opportunities to musicians. The scheme aims to fund projects that have a large potential for success beyond the funding period.
Eligible expenditure includes:
- Master Classes
- Performances and events
- Eligible ongoing expenses or capital development projects
