The Leche Trust
The Leche Trust's main grants programme supports projects in two areas: performing arts and conservation. Trustees will consider grants up to £5,000. In 2017 they awarded 83 grants totalling £172,400. The average grant was £2,077.
Applicants must be UK registered charities, public authorities or public institutions. We do not accept applications from Community Interest Companies (CICs) or individuals (except overseas PhD students – see separate guidance).
The Trustees support projects that promote excellence in professional performance in music, dance and theatre, with particular emphasis on new work and on the development of young professionals aged 18 or over. Trustees are sympathetic to projects that widen geographical access to the performing arts, for example through festivals and touring.
