The Wolfson Foundation

Arts & Culture Health & Social Care Heritage

The Wolfson Foundation awards grants to support and promote excellence in the fields of science and medicine, the arts and humanities, education and health and disability.

Charities and organisations with charitable status (or equivalent) can apply for grants to fund capital projects, such as buildings or refurbishment and equipment. The Foundation does not specify a maximum amount organisations can apply for. Preference is given to stating the total cost of your project and the amount you still need to raise towards it. In the following round of applications (Stage 2), you will be asked to provide a list of discrete elements of your project which we might be able to allocate a grant.

Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. The Wolfson Foundation runs two funding rounds each year, a Spring and Autumn round. For most programme areas, the key dates are:

Spring round – CLOSED

Autumn round
Stage 1 applications: accepted no later than 1 July
Stage 2 applications: deadline 1 September
Funding decision: December

Please note that there may be a cap on the number of applications that are invited for each funding round and it is therefore advisable to submit your application well in advance of the Stage 1 deadline dates. Applications received before the Stage 1 deadline may be deferred until a later funding round if the current one is over-subscribed.
