ChurchCare provides grants towards the conservation of organs and organ cases for Anglican churches in England.
Grants of up to £8,000 can be awarded.
In particular, grants are available for the conservation of an organ in its present state and for schemes where the proposed works restore a clearly established earlier historic state but not for speculative works.
Funding is available for organs which are over 70 years old. Such instruments will normally be examples of organbuilding work which retain the character of the original organ and its builder, with a minimum of alteration. Significant instruments of a later date can be considered for grant aid. Organ cases of historic merit are eligible for consideration.
The next application deadline for applications is Monday 13 May 2019. Decisions on successful applications are expected to be announced in July.
Guidance notes and online application forms are available from the ChurchCare website or contact:
