The objects of the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation are to promote the arts, culture and heritage for the public benefit. As well as providing Musical Theatre scholarships and supporting projects through The Architectural Heritage Fund, the Trustees welcome applications to support projects in the areas of culture, heritage and the arts.
The Foundation wishes to award projects that make a real and ongoing difference to people’s lives. Priority will be given to projects that enable people to develop skills and careers in heritage and in all areas of the performing arts (music, dance and drama) but other areas will be considered. Trustees have a particular interest in projects around Victorian art and architecture and/or connected to music and the performing arts.
When reviewing applications the Trustees look for projects that fulfil the following criteria:
- The project fulfils the Foundation’s charitable objectives.
- The project targets those who would not otherwise be able to participate, either due to lack of funding or access to the provision in other identifiable ways.
- The extent to which the project will make a difference to people’s lives.
- The organisation applying for funds can be validated. It can be demonstrated that the project is viable and sustainable.
- The project’s aim is to provide an ongoing benefit.
- The project has a creditable history of being successful in its objectives.
- The project is well managed.
- The quality of the activity in relation to the arts, culture and / or heritage.
- The quality of skills that will be taught.
- The project provides professional tuition or education.
- If your application is for a heritage project, it should be defined to a particular part of the project.
- The budget plan provided shows a realistic outcome.
The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation sets no maximum amount you can apply for, but where appropriate, the Trustees would expect you to have secured a significant proportion of funding prior to sending in your application.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. Trustees meet three to four times a year. The deadline for applications to be considered at the next Trustee meeting in Spring 2018 is Friday 5 January 2018.
