ABOUT THE FOUNDATION
A new grant-giving charity
The Vaughan Williams Foundation (VWF) was established in 2022, exactly 150 years after the birth of the celebrated composer Ralph Vaughan Williams. It brings together the two charities originally founded by Ralph (RVW Trust) and his wife Ursula (Vaughan Williams Charitable Trust) and is funded by the royalties earned from RVW’s music.
The principal aims of the Foundation are to honour RVW’s desire to support his fellow composers, and to make his own work widely accessible to the general public.
VWF is now open for applications and the first grants will be awarded in 2023.
All enquiries regarding the RVWT and the VWCT, and any outstanding grants, should now be addressed to the Foundation.
