The Wolfson Foundation


The Wolfson Foundation



The Wolfson Foundation has a long history of supporting the arts and humanities – in recognition of the UK’s strength in this area and the importance of the cultural sector both to the economy and to the enrichment of society.

For direct applications, we aim to support and encourage excellence in the cultural and academic spheres, generally through funding capital projects at museums and galleries, historic sites, educational institutions and performing arts organisations. The range and scale of our activity in this area may be seen in a number of featured case studies and under the relevant section of our Annual Reports. We fund across all parts of the UK.

Further information on our funding in this area, including eligibility criteria and our grant-making objectives, can be found under the respective programmes via the menu on the left.
