Esmee Fairbairn Collections Fund

The Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund, run by the Museums Association, funds projects which develop collections to achieve social impact. Museums, galleries and heritage organisations can apply for a grant of between £20,000 and £120,000 for a project lasting up to three years.

There are two application rounds each year in March and September, with a short initial application form. The process from initial application to being awarded funds takes around four months.
