Technically the Trust administers the estate of Jelka Delius which comprises the rights in the works of Frederick Delius.  The Autograph manuscripts are now in the British Library having been donated by the Trust in 1996.  This was done in order to ensure their preservation and to make them more generally accessible to scholars - the Trust has very limited space so is only able to accommodate researchers by prior appointment in very limited numbers.

The Trust is essentially a funding organisation for projects which are initiated elsewhere. Publications, recordings, and performances are considered for underwriting through the auspices of the Trust.  Anyone who wishes to apply for funding for a Delius related project must first obtain a copy of the guidelines which is available for Marjorie Dickinson at the above address.

The Delius Association of Florida (Merged with Riverside Fine Arts Association in 2004)

This organization was based in Jacksonville, Florida, where Delius lived for several years in the 1880's. The annual Delius Festival featured concerts, lectures and tours of Delius sites.   It is hoped that the Delius Association of Florida will be revived as an independent association at some future date.
