We have a new online application process.

Applicants apply online and receive instant acknowledgement. They can also save their application and come back to it later. 

We will continue to accept the old-style emailed application form, if you have already been working on it, until 31 July but you can no longer download this form.

After 31 July we will no longer accept emailed applications.


The Clothworkers' Foundation was set up by The Clothworkers' Company in 1977 and aims to improve the lives of people and communities, particularly those facing disadvantage.

We award capital grants to UK charities  and bursaries and fellowships to qualified conservators.

Our other work, including a textiles grant programme, is not open to applications.

Since its establishment, the Foundation has awarded grants of more than…

£100m.
