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.

Community Project Funding

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.

Councillor Community Grants

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 Tudor Trust

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.
