Grants are available for UK registered charities working in the UK in the areas of the arts, health and medical welfare, and improvement or protection of the environment.
The D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust was established in 1972 by the late Dame Bridget D’Oyly Carte, DBE.
The Trust offers funding to UK registered charities whose work addresses its charitable objectives, which are:
- The advancement of the arts.
- Health and medical welfare.
- Environmental protection or improvement.
Grants generally range from £500 to £5,000. Grants can be used for core costs or for projects and the Trust also considers applications for matched funding.
The majority of grants are single grants over a one-year period. Occasionally longer-term grants of up to three years are awarded but in exceptional cases.
The funding is to be used for core costs and projects.
Projects that fall within the following fields of interest are eligible for support:
- The Arts
- Medical Welfare
- The Environment
Applications for matched funding will be considered. Grants will be paid directly into the charity’s bank account by BACS. Payment will usually take place within 30 days after a grant decision has been made.
Who can apply
UK Registered, Exempt or Excepted charities can apply working within the UK for the benefit of UK residents.
The next deadline for applications is 6 February 2020.
The Trustees usually consider applications three times a year in March, July and November.
