Our supporters and funders
The Voices Foundation is giving the nation back its voice
Hilary Finch, The Times
The Voices Foundation is a small charity with big ideas. We work nationwide, bringing our unique, singing-based In-School programme to state primary schools all over the country, from Durham to Devon, often in areas of rural and inner-city deprivation. The benefits, to both pupils and staff, have long been recognised. Please see our In-School Progamme area of the website to find out more.
Each school is asked for a contribution towards the costs of the programme, but most have neither the resources, nor access to outside funds, to support more than a small part of the total sum needed. The Voices Foundation then works with the schools to assist with raising the necessary funds. The absence of core funding means that we seek grants each year to respond positively to requests for our programme, and we are grateful to our many and generous supporters.
We continue to seek support from Charitable Trusts and Foundations, Corporate and Business partners; agencies such as Creative Partnerships, volunteers, school PTAs and local fundraisers also have their parts to play, and ways of becoming involved as a donor are to be found elsewhere on this site.
The Voices Foundation gratefully acknowledges the support, both past and current, of organisations, individuals and Charitable Trusts and Foundations, whose generosity has allowed us to achieve so much since our establishment in 1993. Among many others, these include The Headley Trust, The Hedley Foundation, The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, The Paul Hamlyn Foundation, John Lyon’s Charity, The Santander Foundation, The Garfield Weston Foundation, CHK Charities Ltd, the Radcliffe Trust, the St James’s Place Foundation, the Fishmongers’ Company, RSCM Oxford and Christ Church Cathedral, the Drapers’ Company, The Rayne Foundation, The Worshipful Company of Grocers, The Foyle Foundation, The Equitable Charitable Trust, The Goldsmiths’ Company, The Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation and others who choose to remain anonymous.
This support has enabled us to reach hundreds of primary schools, and help thousands of children, teachers and parents to enjoy music, and to keep music and singing at the forefront of community life.
