Music for All: Community Project Funding

Arts & Culture

Music for All’s Community Project Funding awards up to £2,500 to not-for-profit organisations, VCSEs, registered charities and schools that aim to bring musical projects to their local communities.

Funding is available for musical instrument costs, associated equipment or for teaching costs for projects that aim to bring music to their community.

The main things that the trustees look for are:

  • How many new musicians will the project create and support?
  • How sustainable the project is, so as we can be sure that people are able to continue their musical journeys
  • Whether there are any other organisations supporting the project that can help with funding, or if you’ve applied to any other charities.

Deadline:

  • Spring: Application deadline is 1 November for funding requirement in the following January
  • Summer: Application deadline is 1 February for funding requirement in April
  • Autumn: Application deadline is 1 July for funding requirement in September
