Grants - Toyrtyssyn

Grants and bursaries are awarded to groups and individuals for a wide variety of purposes relating to the culture of the Isle of Man and its people. Applications are carefully considered by the Board so that awards can be made within the framework of our policies and the Manx Heritage Foundation Act.

The first point of contact for detailed enquiries is the Director phone 01624 676169.

More information can be found in the downloads on the right, where you can find the form in a variety of formats. Please note that new forms apply for each financial year, and all successful applicants have to complete an End of Project Monitoring form.

Information on grants awarded forms part of our publicly available annual accounts and report, and grants are awarded on this basis. General conditions are outlined in full on the application form and conditions specific to an application are outlined in the grant letter.

Please note:

  • The Board often has to deal with a large body of paperwork, so it is essential that you fill in each section of the form, adding supporting information where necessary as an appendix. Incomplete forms will not go before the Board.
  • Please email us your grant applications and appendices, preferably as one single PDF. This is particularly helpful when the supporting material is extensive.
  • If the electronic submission does not include a signature, then a signed hard copy should also be posted to us at our P.O. Box address.
  • Please take care to fill in the information within the form itself, with additional information attached as a separate document.
  • Any handwritten forms should be scanned and emailed as a PDF where possible - all submissions must be legible and hard copies must not use metal staples.
  • Applications may be written in English or Manx.

Applications should be received no later than fourteen days before each meeting.
