WHAT INSPIRES US
The Elias Fawcett Trust’s main work is giving young musicians in and around London a chance to perform before a listening public. Playing to live audiences is one of the best ways to foster the skill and enthusiasm at the heart of music.
The Trust was set up in memory of Elias Fawcett, a promising guitarist who died in 1996 not long before his 18th birthday. His passion for live performance and his ability to bring people together defines the Trust’s vision and objectives.
WHAT WE SUPPORT
We organise and support performances in public and private venues and in schools. We help with non-statutory music education in schools. We work with other music-education charities. We sponsor prizes at leading music competitions in London.
Our grants range between £200 and £3000, the final amount depending on a number of factors, from size of event to whether it is a single or group application.
UNFORTUNATELY, WE ARE NOT GIVING OUT ANY MORE GRANTS AT THE MOMENT.
