Funding for places
Our main grants programme provides support for places. These grants are for capital initiatives, i.e. buildings (new build or refurbishment) and equipment. We fund a broad range of organisations working across the fields of education, science & medicine, health & disability and arts & humanities.
Update on applications for 2020
The Wolfson Foundation is committed to working with the organisations that we serve, and ensuring our funding is as helpful as is possible in the current challenging circumstances. With this in mind, we are making some changes to our funding for the rest of 2020.
For universities, research organisations and schools, we will continue to run our standard funding programmes for capital infrastructure projects.
For other areas of our work, we will run a Covid-19 Support Fund to provide unrestricted funding to recent grantees working in heritage and the arts, and health and disability. During this time we will not be accepting new applications for organisations working in these sectors. We hope to be able to reopen our capital funding programmes for 2021.
For more information please read our statement on our Covid-19 Support Fund.
