PRS for Music Foundation is the only independent funder dedicated to new music of all genres across the UK. Since March 2000 it has supported over 4,250 new music initiatives to the tune of over £16 million. Widely respected as an adventurous and proactive funding body, PRS for Music Foundation supports an exceptional range of new music activity – from new band showcases, UK tours, festivals and promoters to composer residencies, commissions and professional development.
We achieve this through open grants and programmes run in partnership with like-minded funders. Recent initiatives include New Music 20x12, a commissioning programme for the Cultural Olympiad, Women Make Music – a special fund for women music creators, and Musicians in Residence China in partnership with British Council.
If you create, perform, promote or commission new music you may be able to apply for a PRS for Music Foundation grant. To find out more and to apply online visit www.prsformusicfoundation.com
