The Utley Foundation

The Utley Foundation is a private family charitable trust, established in 2014. The Foundation exists to advance social causes close to the heart of the trustees, and to act as a catalyst for greater funding and wider action for the causes it supports.

The Utley Foundation is particularly focused on how music can support people living with dementia. The Foundation has been exploring a wide range of musical activities, from live music to personalised playlists, cementing their place as a pioneering philanthropic financier in this emergent space.

The Utley Foundation is committed to supporting all those working in the music and dementia space. We recognise that there are many excellent activities that need funding. While we welcome organisations to apply for funding, if they feel that their project fits with our grant guidelines, please note that we are not currently accepting unsolicited applications.
