Paul Hamlyn Foundation

The Paul Hamlyn Foundation is one of the UK’s largest independent charitable trusts. It offers a range of grant opportunities, particularly for the Arts. During the financial year ending 31 March 2015 the Foundation allocated grants totalling just under £20 million.
The Foundation’s Arts-based Learning Fund offers two levels of funding:
o ‘Explore and Test’ grants of up to £60,000 for up to two years. Funding is designed to help explore and test both new approaches and ways of addressing new issues. Up to 20% of the grant may be allocated as a contribution to organisational running costs.
o ‘More and Better’ grants of up to £400,000 for up to four years.
Funding is intended to help arts organisations - or the sector more broadly - to deliver more effective arts-based learning.
Charities, community organisations, social enterprises and not-for-profit companies active in the arts are eligible to apply. PLEASE NOTE: applicants must be working in partnership with schools or other formal education settings.
Applications will be considered for projects that: 
o Take place on or off school premises and in or out of school hours.
o Involve any of the following: crafts, creative writing (including poetry), dance, design, film, music, opera, photography, digital arts and media, theatre and drama, the visual arts, and cross-arts practices.
o Is about learning in arts subjects or uses arts-based approaches to achieve one or more of the following:
o Teaches other subjects (eg teaching science through drama-based techniques, or maths by using music, or history through the study of paintings);
o Supports other positive whole school outcomes; and
o Supports students’ life skills and readiness to learn.
The Foundation is particularly interested in funding:
o Work designed to achieve significant benefit for children and young people experiencing disadvantage, while adopting an inclusive/whole school approach.
o Work for the benefit of primary-age children.
o Work taking place in areas of social and economic deprivation outside of London.
