Covid 19 – funding update. Chivers Trust are keen to hear proposals from those that are able to adapt their programme of activity  in keeping with the guidelines. We appreciate the difficulty that arts organisations, artists and participants are experiencing with their plans for Summer/Autumn 2020 and we welcome applications requesting financial support to assist with innovative, virtual or socially distanced, local projects.

How to apply

There is no application form, but your proposal should include:

  • Who you are

  • What you want funds for

  • The total budget for your project

  • A statement of your financial position, including existing sources of finance. You may be asked later to provide a set of accounts

Please do not send videos, DVDs, CDs, or bulky reports. Applications can be made at any time. Each project proposal will be considered on its own merits. There are no closing dates and all applications should receive an initial response within six  weeks.


Please send applications by email to:
