Trusts and Foundations

Funding from trusts and foundations is an indispensible sources of funding for Derby Theatre. We work with a number of foundations both as a leading partner in city-wide cultural initiatives and as an independent registered charity.

Our creative learning and community engagement projects are setting national precedents for how the theatre should interact with its social environment. Our innovative cultural conversations would not be heard, however, without the deeply valuable contributions we receive from the foundations we work with. We apply to trusts in the sincere belief that we can be an effective and worthy advocate for their funding priorities. Derby Theatre understands that some foundations prefer to solicit bids. If you wish to solicit a bid from us, we would be more than happy to engage in a confidential discussion about our work and how it correlates with your aims as a funding organisation.
