Managed by The Heritage Alliance and the Architectural Heritage Fund, the Heritage Funding Directory is a free guide to financial support for anyone undertaking UK related heritage projects. This is a useful starting point for navigating funding sources in the sector and it is recommended that you visit the funder’s website directly to explore the latest information.
Thanks to support from the Historic Houses Foundation, The Heritage Alliance and The Architectural Heritage Fund combined their funding directories to provide around 400 updated listings detailing sources of grants from trusts and foundations, as well as organisations offering loan finance, awards, scholarships and other ‘in kind’ resources.
The Directory’s entries cover historic buildings, landscapes, parks and gardens, churchyards and cemeteries, industrial heritage, archives, historic churches, museums, archaeology, the environmental, heritage skills, conservation and more.
Heritage Alliance member, Kate Pugh, also created a new list of around 100 grants and funding sources that are available for heritage projects outside of the UK in the International Funding Directory, which will soon be integrated into the main Heritage Funding Directory.
Are you able to offer funding? Please support this vital heritage sector tool by contacting the Communications Team at The Heritage Alliance to keep your entry up to date or to register a new fund.
To assist organisations throughout the pandemic, The Heritage Alliance has compiled advice and guidance on mitigating the effects of COVID-19 for organisations across the heritage sector. Access the live document here: THA COVID-19 Guidance Hub.
The Architectural Heritage Fund also produced a handy guide on support available to charities and social enterprises during COVID-19.
