Trusts & foundations

We’ve been very privileged to work closely with a number of trusts and foundations over the last ten years. The support from these organisations helps MIF and its artists to realise our ambitious projects, reach new audiences and have a profound and positive impact on the local communities around Greater Manchester. Some trusts and foundations work directly with My Festival, MIF’s new creative community, or on specific MIF projects, while others support our work across the board.

We’d like to offer our sincere thanks to the trusts and foundations below for their generous support of MIF19. To find out how you can join them please contact Yvonne Hepburn-Foster, MIF’s Trusts and Foundations Manager, on +44 (0)161 817 4516 or
