Funding for Heritage, Music and Health Projects

Grants are available for charities throughout the UK for projects that protect important heritage sites, preserve, and protect choral and organ traditions, and address disparities in access to medical treatment and awareness.

The Hamish Ogston Foundation is offering grants starting from £1.5 million for charities throughout the United Kingdom to deliver heritage, music, and sustainable health projects that have measurable social outcomes and make a long-lasting difference.

Funding will support projects and activities that focus on the following funding areas:

  • Heritage – Protecting the heritage of important sites across the UK and preserving structures, their craftsmanship, and their traditions.
  • Music – Promoting the UK’s choral and organ traditions, including related initiatives and apprenticeships, to preserve their knowledge and culture.
  • Health – Working towards eliminating the disparities in both access to medical treatment and health awareness amongst the most disadvantaged sections of society.

Funding will be awarded to projects that align with the Foundation’s guiding strategy:

  • Encourage an entrepreneurial mindset – Secure the long-term sustainability of funded projects and, where appropriate, promote sustainable apprenticeships and employment.
  • Maximise the benefit – Provide a commercially-minded input to ensure that no money is wasted.
  • Address the North-South divide – Help address the economic divide between the South of England and the rest of the UK. Preference will be given to projects north of the line from the Severn to The Wash.
  • Easy to measure outcomes – Have measurable outcomes that are easily monitored to ensure a visible and lasting difference.

There is a two-stage application process, wherein applicants must first submit an outline application before being invited to complete a full application.

Applications can be made at any time.
