The Golsoncott Foundation

Arts & Culture

The Golsoncott Foundation awards grants (normally up to £3,000) to arts organisations with projects that demonstrate and deliver excellence in the arts, be it in performance, exhibition, artistic craft, or scholarly endeavour. The Foundation’s objective is to promote, maintain, improve and advance the education of the public in the arts generally and in particular the fine arts and music. The trustees particularly favour applications from arts organisations whose raison d’être is the art form itself, and its perfection or excellence in performance.​

Additionally where applications concern young people, the trustees are interested in a long-lasting connection between them and the art, rather than a project offering little scope for further involvement.​

Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. Application should be sent by the end of the month preceding the month of the trustees meeting, i.e., by the end of January, April, July and October in advance of the February, May, August and November meetings. The volume of applications is often very high, and the trustees may close the nominal deadline before the end of the quarter. Applicants therefore are advised not to wait until the end of the quarter before submission, the earlier the application the more considered the first appraisal.​
