The Hitmaker Fund
The Hitmaker Fund offers an opportunity for songwriters and producers working in popular music genres to further develop their careers and writing/production with grants of between £5,000 – £10,000.
Launched in 2017 as a response to the long-term career needs of those working behind the scenes, The Hitmaker Fund (formerly The Writer Producer Fund) was initiated by PRS Foundation with BASCA Trust. The rebranded Hitmaker Fund is now delivered by PRS Foundation.

Spotify is the exclusive digital partner for Hitmaker. This partnership will mean more talented producers and songwriters will be supported and that there will be a closer working relationship between supported grantees and the Spotify team for promotional and marketing opportunities.
Aaron Buckingham, Songwriter and Publishing Relations at Spotify said, “Songwriters are vital to the music industry, but often do not get the visibility they deserve. With this funding, we hope to help bring songwriters out from behind the curtain and into the limelight. We are proud to be the exclusive partner with the PRS Foundation to help empower songwriters to do what they do best: create and promote the music fans love.”
