Often The Music Partnership is asked about different funding sources that can support music in schools.

This page lists some of the sources of potential funding for which schools may be eligible to apply.

Please note this information can be subject to change, so it is always best to contact the organisations directly and check their eligibility criteria before applying for funding.

The Music Partnership cannot tell you give you direct advice about the specific funding requirements for any of the organisations listed here or recommend which organisations to approach. This should be assessed by the organisation making the application after consulting the donors website.
