Special Interest

The grants listed and described below are FMF’s current grants of £10,000 or more. We also make a significant number of smaller grants to a wide range of social change projects at TFN events.

Frederick Mulder Foundation donated 23 ceramics works by Picasso to The Remai Modern in Saskatchewan in September 2014. The Remai Modern is a new gallery on Saskatoonʼs River Landing in Canada, opened in 2017. Frederick Mulder grew up in Eston, Saskatchewan, and these important Picasso works will serve as a wonderful bridge between the gallery’s highly important Picasso linocut collection, which Frederick Mulder Limited sold to the Remai in 2013, and the tradition of Saskatchewan art ceramics. Fred reflected “I loved growing up in Saskatchewan, and I count myself lucky to be able to give something back to the city and the province that gave so much to me”. The ceramics will be exhibited in a gallery dedicated to Picasso and works of international modernity at The Remai Modern.

Peace Brigades International UK trains and sends international volunteer observers to areas of conflict and repression to provide unarmed accompaniment to human rights defenders(e.g. lawyers and campaigners) who are at risk of physical violence because of their work. FMF supports the organisation’s core costs.

Playback Theatre South West is a form of improvised theatre where personal stories, memories and experiences are given artistic expression. FMF supports Playback Theatre Southwest’s core costs which enables it to work with vulnerable groups, including asylum seekers, refugees, victims of domestic violence and young carers.
