The Golsoncott Foundation

The trustees overriding concern is to support those projects that demonstrate and deliver excellence in the arts, be it in performance, exhibition, artistic craft, or scholarly endeavour.

Many applications are received from organisations and other charities whose focus on the arts is part of their wider social, youth, educational, faith-based, or therapeutic work. Such laudable work, though, is concerned with participation in the arts rather than excellence and the promotion of the highest standards. Given the fierce competition for grants, the trustees favour applications from arts organisations whose raison d’être is the art form itself, and its perfection or excellence in performance.​ Additionally where applications concern young people, the trustees are interested in a long-lasting connection between them and the art, rather than a project offering little scope for further involvement.​

The Trustees meet in February, May, August, November. Those applications deemed suitable out of the many received are then considered for final determination. Grants rarely exceed £3,000, and are given on a non-recurrent basis with some exceptions.

All applications should be supplied in digital AND hard copy. Recent grants are listed on their website and full details of how to apply can be found here
