National Heritage Memorial Fund

logo for National Heritage Memorial Fund

Aims/priorities: Financial assistance towards the cost of acquiring historic land, buildings, works of fine and decorative art and other objects of interest which are important to the national heritage. The Fund is essentially a ‘last resort’. Applicants should ensure that all other sources of funding have been tried before an application is made. There are no rules for partnership funding, but because the Fund has limited resources, it will only pay for the total cost of a project or acquisition in exceptional cases.  Due to the nature of the scheme, applicant contributions should normally be made as cash.

Who can apply? Eligible organisations are charities and not-for-profit organisations based in the UK whose main purposes include preserving cultural or built heritage or conserving the natural heritage

Grant amount: None specified

Deadline: None specified
