£25m fund for arts charities launched

The Garfield Weston Foundation has announced a £25m fund to help cultural organisations recover from the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Foundation is finalising details for the one-off Weston Culture Fund which will launch on the 5th October and run to 9 November. The £25 million fund is designed to support mid to large scale cultural organisations in the UK to help them restart work, re-engage with audiences, adapt to changed circumstances and generate revenue.

Grants are offered of between £100,000 and £2m to visual arts organisations, arts centres, museums and galleries with a minimum annual income of £500,000.

While the fund focuses on medium-sized and large organisations, smaller arts charities will still be able to apply for funds from the foundation’s regular programmes. The foundation accepts and reviews applications below £100,000 on an ongoing basis and charities can apply anytime.

Application for funding details can be found here.
