The Friends Provident Foundation provides financial support to projects that promote a more resilient, sustainable and fairer economic system.
Support is available for projects that aim to:
- Transform corporate behaviour and financial systems
- As well as for projects that build local economic resilience.
Trustees will consider applications for grants, loans, underwriting or other forms of financial support.
Previous organisations supported include:
SUSTAIN, which received a grant of £75,000 for a concerted three-year campaign, drawing on the support of many people and organisations to achieve changes in government policy and industry practice to create a million good jobs though better farming and land-use.
ECHO, a trading network of over 500 organisations in East London that uses time as the currency, rather than money. This project received a grant of £140,000 and aims to develop and refine the infrastructure for local, sustainable Echo systems at national scale.
The next closing date for applications is noon on the 3rd May 2017.
