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. Currently however no applications are being accepted for Britten Awards, New Music Commissions and Local Grants. A full review of the Foundation's grant-giving will take place in 2017 and further information will be put on the website thereafter.
We promote the music of Benjamin Britten and his work with singer Peter Pears, and are based at the home they shared. The Red House in Aldeburgh.
