Fidelio Charitable Trust

The Fidelio Charitable Trust was established in 2008 in support of the Arts in the United Kingdom. The Trustees aim to help individuals and groups who would not be able to carry out a project or activity without financial support, particularly those who are at an early stage in their careers. Such individuals and groups must be recommended by an appropriate person in an institution, college, Arts Festival and similar organisations. Applications by those seeking support for themselves will not be considered by the trustees.

Fidelio’s funds are limited and no single grant will normally be greater than £5,000. The trustees, while willing to provide support, may sometimes only be able to part-fund a project or activity.There is no Nationality restriction and the work for which money is sought may be overseas but the proposed recipient(s) must be based in the UK.

The closing dates for receipt of applications are 1st February, 1st June and 1st October. The trustees aim to inform successful applicants within one month of the relevant closing date. If you do not receive any acknowledgement within one month of the relevant closing date, you must assume that your application is not successful.
