FUNDING: Leche Trust Small Grants – next deadline 29 March 2022

Small grants are available to support the Performing Arts and Conservation of Historic Objects.

UK registered charities, public authorities or institutions active in the areas of the Performing Arts and the Conservation can apply for grants of up to £5,000.

The Performing Arts funding is for projects that promote excellence in professional performance in music, dance and theatre.

The Conservation strand is for projects that conserve historic objects, collections and features of buildings and landscapes which date from the Georgian period or earlier (pre-1830s).

Trustees are inclined to give grants to smaller projects, or specific elements of projects, where their contribution can make a greater impact.

In the case of churches, they will consider supporting the conservation of such features as monuments, wall paintings, stained glass, and historic furniture and fittings.

The trustees meet three times a year in March, June and November.

The next deadline is for the Summer funding round in June. The closing date for applications is the 29 April 2022.
