Very much part of the ENO family, but a separate registered charity set up almost 60 years ago, the ENO Benevolent Fund aims to support our performers and those behind the scenes when things go wrong through illness, accident or some other hardship.
This may involve tiding a person (and sometimes their dependants) over a difficult time, or providing longer-term support. The trustees who administer the fund can award loans and grants and consider each case with great care.
“When we needed it most, the ENO Benevolent Fund stepped in, giving us help and support so I could concentrate on recovery”
“The support you’ve been able to provide has taken the pressure off me needing to go back into working full-time on repertoire that might set me back physically, and I can’t thank you enough for that help.”
“I wanted to let you know how grateful we were and truly overwhelmed by the extraordinary generosity of the trustees. This has been a shot in the arm for me and I feel renewed vigour and energy and a strong desire to make the most of the opportunities that this support has given us.”
Apart from a small percentage from dress rehearsal tickets and the Benefits Club, the ENO Benevolent Fund depends entirely on donations for its income. Help us to help those in need. Anything you can give will make a real difference.
