Philip Bates Trust Arts Grant

by | Jan 10, 2018 |

Of interest to organisations dealing with Arts, Young People, Creative Activities

The Philip Bates Trust Arts grant supports creative endeavour by sponsoring prizes, and by offering financial support to organisations.

Eligibility

The Trustees gives priority to organisations which have charitable status or which are not-for profit bodies with a track record of serving the community in a field relevant to the Trust’s aims and objectives.

What For?

The Trust aims to advance the education of young people under the age of 25 in the arts by:

  • The provision of awards to encourage and support their pursuit of creative and artistic achievement.
  • The provision of financial support to projects or workshops, which aim to develop creative and artistic interests and skills in young people.

 

Applications from individuals

Grants to individuals are normally for a period of no longer than 12 months from the date when the award is made.

Grants to individuals will not be made to more than one sibling per family.

The Trustees may give a second grant to a previous beneficiary but this will only be in exceptional circumstances.

Where possible, the Trustees prefer to receive a personal request from the applicant rather than from their parent, guardian or other adult on their behalf.

The Trust will not contribute to other Bursary funds which make grants to individuals as the Trustees prefer to have a direct relationship with any intended recipient of an award.

 

Applications from organisations

The Trustees gives priority to organisations which have charitable status or which are not-for profit bodies with a track record of serving the community in a field relevant to the Trust’s aims and objectives.

The Trustees prefer to give grants to specific projects rather than to make a contribution to more general activities of an organisation – even if they are in line with the Trust’s charitable objects.

Grants to organisations are normally for a period of no longer than 12 months from the date when the award is made.

An organisation may apply to the Trust for a grant more than once but the new application must be for a different project/initiative.  However, the Trustees have decided that, only in exceptional circumstances, will they consider applications from the same organisation in two consecutive years.

 

How Much?

The grants range from £500 – £10,000. Extraordinary projects may receive grants up to £50,000.

Deadline

The Trustees meet three times a year – usually in February, June and October to assess applications. Applicants should therefore aim to submit their application by the end of the month before the next meeting is due i.e. January, May or September.

The Trust only accepts postal applications.
