Applications Invited to PRS Foundation’s Open Fund for Music Organisations

A national programme is accepting applications.

Funding is available for not-for-profit organisations based in the UK to support new music projects led by promoters, large performance groups, talent development organisations, venues, festivals and curators.

The PRS Foundation is the UK’s leading independent funder of new music and talent development across all genres. It provides the Open Fund for Organisations with the aim of helping to support, sustain and promote the growth of the new music infrastructure in the UK.

Eligible projects must involve the creation, performance and promotion of new music and enable songwriters, composers, artists, bands and performers of all backgrounds to develop creatively and professionally.

Priority will be given to projects that fit with all three of the Foundation’s funding priorities:

  • To support the creation and performance of outstanding new music in any genre.
  • To enable the UK’s most talented music creators to realise their potential.
  • To inspire audiences at a local, regional, national and international level.

Grants of up to £10,000 are available. Projects should have a clearly defined start and end date.

The deadline for applications is 15 March 2022 (6pm).
