During their lifetimes Britten and Pears were generous supporters of various musical, local and pacifist causes. BPF's trustees continued by using income from our founders' estates to support a wide range of charitable giving. In addition to our annual funding to Aldeburgh Music, we have also run several grants programmes. From June 2016 however no further applications are being accepted for Britten Awards, New Music Commissions and Local Grants. It is likely that some grant giving will recommence in 2017 and further details can be found on the pages below.
