The Idlewild Trust

Back to funding directory

A grant making trust that supports registered charities concerned with the encouragement of excellence in the performing arts, and the preservation of buildings and sites of historical interest for the benefits of the public or national importance.

Occasionally it also supports projects that conserve the natural environment. Registered charities can apply for grants of up to £5,000 in two areas:

  • Arts Grants: Nurturing Young Professionals supports programmes that improve opportunities for young professionals working creatively within the arts, particularly at an early stage in their career.
  • Conservation Grants: Objects and Works of Art support the conservation of historic or artistically important objects and works of art in museums, galleries, places of worship, historic buildings, or their grounds.

Applications are considered twice a year.

The next deadline for applications for both funding programmes is 6 September 2022 and application forms will be available in June or July 2022. Applicants should read the funding guidelines before applying.
