NADFAS supports arts and arts heritage through a substantial grant giving programme. There are two types of grant giving activities: grants made by individual Societies and Areas and grants administered by the NADFAS Grants Committee.

Grants are available to help a wide range of activities, and are often made in addition to the contribution of local members. Funding is intended to support people with their ideas, skills and projects, rather than capital or architectural projects.

We offer funding in two main areas; grants for local NADFAS Societies and Areas, and grants which support other organisations and individuals involved in arts education and heritage conservation.

More information about NADFAS Grants

The Patricia Fay Memorial Fund was set up in memory of the NADFAS founder after her death. The Britcher Furlong Bequest and the Zena Walker Bequest Fund were both established from generous legacies. Applicants should apply directly to NADFAS and do not need to specify which fund they are applying to.
