The Enid Linder Foundation

Arts & Culture Health & Social Care

The Enid Linder Foundation will only consider applications from UK registered charities or organisations with exempt status. The Foundation’s grant making policy is to improve the lives of sufferers of a wide range of disease and illnesses and promoting illustrative and musical talent. The Foundation carries out these objectives by awarding grants in the following categories:

Medicine
To fund research, education and capital projects related to all areas of medicine through grants to selected medical universities, institutions and charities.

The Arts
To fund projects which aim to develop and encourage individual and group talent in musical, theatre and illustrative art.

General
To make donations to projects through other registered UK charities which support and care for the benefit of the public as a whole.

The aims of the Foundation are:

  • To continue funding chosen general charitable causes which are of particular interest or concern to the Trustees.
  • To distribute in full, in accordance with the governing Trust Deed, all the income available each year.
  • To maintain resources at a reasonable level in order to continue to provide general charitable assistance in the foreseeable future.

Grants are usually one-off for around £10,000. Multi-year grants are only considered in exceptional circumstances.

Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. Grants applications are considered biannually in March and December each year by the Trustees.

Please note, unsolicited applications are accepted, but the Trustees do receive a very high number of grant applications which, in line with their grant making policy, are mostly unsuccessful.
