PRS Open Fund for Organisations

The Open Fund For Organisations

The Open Fund for Organisations supports new music projects led by promoters, talent development organisations, venues, festivals, curators and large performance groups*.

Projects must involve the creation, performance and promotion of new music and enable songwriters, composers, or solo artists, bands, producers and performers of all backgrounds to develop creatively and professionally

Support is available to any organisation whose project fits with all three funding priorities:

  1. To support the creation, performance and promotion of outstanding new music in any genre
    We are particularly interested in the quality of the music
  2. To enable the UK’s most talented music creators to realise their potential
    We are interested in how your project will develop the songwriters and composers involved. We are committed to supporting UK based songwriters and composers of all backgrounds
  3. To inspire audiences
    You will be asked to outline who you are reaching and how. This includes audiences at a local, regional, national or international level

Through The Open Fund, we support high quality new music projects which have tangible musical outcomes and a clearly defined start and end date.

How much can Organisations apply for?

The Open Fund for Organisations offers grants of up to £10,000.

Our funding includes support of:

• touring
• recording
• promotion and marketing
• commissions of new music by UK-based creators*
• exciting community projects involving high-quality music creators
• music creator residencies
• live programmes featuring new UK music

*We define ‘commission’ as a music creator or group engaged by a third party to create a new piece of music.
