We seek support from charitable Trusts and Grant Makers in line with our ambitions to create One Million Hippodrome Moments.
The funds donated are vital for us to sustain and expand our charitable work and support our ambitions to be a cultural hub, for everyone, right in the heart of Birmingham. Support from Trusts and Grants assists us in delivering our key ambitions for:
- Artistic Investment
- Community and Festivals
- Education and Life-Long Learning
- Capital Plans
By supporting in this way, and often over multiple years, trusts and grants provide a bedrock of support on our journey to deliver One Million Hippodrome Moments – reaching 500,000 people through ticketed performances and a further 500,000 through low cost or free arts experiences. This benefits young people, vulnerable communities and families all across the West Midlands Region.
