Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation

Funding is provided by the Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation for charitable organisations active in the UK.
There is no minimum or maximum award limit. However, the vast majority of grants are for £10,000 and under. The Foundation’s charitable expenditure has ranged between £745,000 and £1.3 million over the last 5 years.
Funding is available under the following main categories:
o Performing Arts (excluding music).
o Music.
o Jewish Life and Learning.
o Medical Research Travel Grants. 
o Performing Arts (excluding music)
Support is available for the performing arts with particular emphasis on financial support for not-for-profit companies with a record of artistic excellence that require additional funding, not available from public sources or commercial sponsorship, to broaden their repertoire or develop work of potentially outstanding interest which cannot be funded from usual sources. Assistance will also be considered for training and professional development for creative talent or the technical professions.
o Music
Support is available for those areas of music performance and education which do not readily attract backing from commercial sponsors or other funding bodies, or which are not eligible for public funding. Priority will be directed towards supporting the work or education of musicians based in, or wishing to study in, the UK, but by no means exclusively so. An important criterion will be whether, in the opinion of the Trustees, the funding sought will make a significant difference to the applicant's prospects. The Foundation will be prepared to consider applications for support for on-going expenses and will be willing to consider such support for a period up to three years. Priority will be given to those organisations which give opportunities to young professionals and to education projects for young people as well as for new adult audiences. This would include direct assistance as well as funding for organisations which promote their work or performance, and support for Master Classes.
o Jewish Life and Learning
Support is available for activities that encourage Jewish cultural, academic and educational life in a manner that enhances the Jewish contribution to the life of the wider community. In particular, applications are invited from academic institutions specialising in Jewish subjects and from bodies promoting Jewish culture, including museums, libraries and literary publications. Applications are also welcomed from organisations able to demonstrate a record in inter-faith dialogue, in the promotion of reconciliation between Jews in Israel and their Arab neighbours and the encouragement of liberal values in both communities.
o Medical Research Travel Grants
The Trustees are mindful of the influence of new clinical and laboratory techniques on the advance of medical science, and are aware of the advantages that may be derived from visits to laboratories for the acquisition of new skills, and for setting up inter-institutional collaborative research. They are prepared to consider applications for funds to cover the expenses of travel and subsistence for such visits up to a maximum of £1,000.
Funding is also awarded under the following headings:
o Education and Social Exclusion
o Development Projects
o Literary prizes, and
o Scolarships 
The remaining 2015 deadlines are:
o Thursday 18 June
o Thursday 24 September, and
o Thursday 10 December
An application form is available to download from the Wingate Foundation website.
Completed forms should be returned by post together with a copy of the organisation's latest accounts.
