Jerwood Foundation is part of a family of philanthropic organisations, including Jerwood Charity (known as Jerwood Arts) and Jerwood Space, which are united in a commitment to support, nurture and reward excellence and dedication in the visual and performing arts. Since 1991 Jerwood has channelled over £108 million in capital and revenue funding in support of the arts in the UK. The foundation owns the Jerwood Collection of 20th and 21st century British art, which is available for display in the public domain and registered as a UK charity in January 2022.


Jerwood Foundation in the UK now welcomes applications for funding for capital and project support, particularly with a focus on working with our Collection and making art available for public benefit. Capital grants will always be limited in number and size, and project grants, apart from those focused on making art available for public display, should be directed to Jerwood Charity


Applications should be sent either by email to or by post to PO Box 186, Ludlow, SY8 9DX.


Please send your application as one document, this should be a maximum of 10 sides of A4 including your budget and fundraising plan and any other relevant information, either as a Word document or PDF. Please provide a copy of your organisation’s latest audited accounts or if you are a small charity and not required to produce audited accounts, please provide your annual budget (with income and expenditure detail). Please note the focus of our charity is on the promotion of the arts for the public benefit. We cannot provide funding for the promotion of individual artists, which is generally not charitable.  In addition, we do not fund core organisational costs or capital endowments.


All applications will be acknowledged and considered; however, we are unable to provide feedback on individual applications.
