Amal – a Said Foundation fund

Amal – ‘hope’ in Arabic – aims to increase understanding of Britain’s Muslim communities among people of other faiths and none, and to foster a stronger sense of belonging in the UK among Muslim communities. The programme, from the Said Foundation, makes grants of up to £50,000 in support of a rich diversity of arts projects and activities, including storytelling, visual arts, theatre, poetry, film, music and dance.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis but will be closed when and if demand has been great and available funding has been fully utilised.

Amal will award grants of up to a maximum of:

£25,000 for funding in a single year.
£40,000 for funding spread over two years.
£50,000 for funding spread over three years.
