The Elephant Trust offers grants to artists in the visual arts, small organisations and galleries throughout the UK. The Trust generally awards grants to small organisations and galleries in particular for projects where there is a lack of funding available.
The Trust aims to make it possible for artists and those presenting their work to undertake and complete projects when frustrated by lack of funds. It is committed to helping artists and institutions that lead new, distinct and imaginative projects and work.
Funding priority is given to the visual arts and small organisations and galleries. Available grants are usually limited to £2,000, but larger grants up to £5,000 may be considered.
In order to apply you are required to provide a completed Cover sheet (using the template provided on the Trust’s website), a single page synopsis of the project, a budget and other supporting information. The Trust has two deadlines per year, details of which can be found on the website.
