Grants programme

The Henry Moore Foundation is aware of the challenges and complications that organisations face in light of the coronavirus (Covid-19).

Find out more about how we will continue to support Grants recipients during this difficult time.

Henry Moore changed the way we understand sculpture. His Foundation continues to do so today.

In addition to our own programmes at our bases in Hertfordshire and Leeds, we support the growth and development of sculpture through our Grants programme. Henry Moore Grants continue Moore's legacy by supporting sculpture across historical, modern and contemporary registers and seeking to fund research that expands the appreciation of sculpture.

Applications will be assessed on three occasions during this year by the Grants Committee.

Deadline dates 2020: 9 December.  

Deadline dates 2021: 25 February, 20 May, 2 September, 9 December.
