Trusts and Foundations

The generous support of Trusts and Foundations is vital for us to continue to engage with our communities, both in Cockermouth through the Kirkgate Centre and across a large area of West Cumbria through Kirkgate Arts Out West, our rural touring arm.

We would like to express our gratitude to our funders. Since 2020 this has included: Arts Council England, Heritage Fund, Community Fund, Copeland Community Fund, Hadfield Trust, Francis Scott Trust, The Arts Society, The Ashley Family Foundation, The Slater Trust Ltd, Rotary International, Cockermouth WI, The Foyle Foundation, Metalcraft, Cumbria Community Foundation, Lord Egremont, Allerdale GDF Community Partnership, Papcastle Recreation Fund, and Helping Hands.
