The Manx Heritage Foundation was set up by Act of Tynwald in 1982. Its over-arching policy is to support and promote Manx culture. To this end it awards grants for approved projects and also initiates schemes of its own. The members meet on a regular basis throughout the year to consider applications for grants and to develop schemes which range over a wide area of Manx life including wildlife, geology, language, music, archaeology, history, social anthropology, oral history, archiving, education and the production of recordings and videos.
The Foundation currently employs four staff: a Manx Language Coordinator, a Manx Music Development Officer, a Manx Music Specialist and an Administrator.
