The Samuel Gardner Memorial Trust was set up in April 1970 following a bequest from Arthur Gardner who wished the Trust to be named in memory of his father Samuel, a prominent landowner and benefactor in the Harrow on the Hill area.
The objectives of the Trust are to apply trust income towards:

• the advancement of music and musical education generally
• support for the arts and heritage

Our first priority is to support music education projects which show lasting legacy and quality, and are centred on learning and participation, music in healthcare, young people’s musical development, and inclusiveness. As a subsidiary strand we consider applications which address the preservation of the natural environment.

Please note that the Trust is not able to make grants
• to individuals or organisations applying on their behalf e.g. for bursaries
• for core costs in preserving or maintaining institutions
