Trusts and Foundations play a vital role in ensuring our artistic and creative learning programmes are of the highest possible standard and help us reach the broadest audience possible.  

Below are some of the projects that this support has enabled.

  • Support from the National Foundation for Youth Music, working with local authority partners in York, Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire, enables the NCEM to run Music4U - engaging with young people living in challenging circumstances across the region

  • Support from the Mayfield Valley Arts Trust enables the NCEM to run a year-round creative learning programme. 

  • Support from Creative Europe and partners across Europe enable the NCEM to participate in a professional development programme designed to support emerging ensembles in the field of early music.

  • Support from the Garfield Weston Foundation, the Foyle Foundation and the Arts Council England have enabled the NCEM to upgrade its facilities in time to celebrate its 20th anniversary year.

  • Support from the National Lottery through the Arts Council and partners including York Civic Trust, the Garfield Weston Foundation and English Heritage ensured the restoration of St Margaret's Church and the creation of the National Centre for Early Music in 2000.
