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 currently reviewing how our funding will be structured for the rest of 2020 – with the aim of being as flexible and as supportive as possible. We look forward to sharing more information on this in the coming weeks. In the meantime (and in order not to waste any applicant’s time) we are pausing our open grant programmes and will not be accepting new applications.
The exception to this is our funding for universities and schools where, from our conversations with those working in these sectors, it is clear that there is an ongoing need for capital projects. Our online application forms remain open for these organisations.
