The Edge Fund, which was initiated by a small group of philanthropists and activists in early 2012, has announced that the next deadline for applications is midnight on the 12th November 2017.
The aim of the fund is to support communities, campaign groups and activists struggling for social, economic and environmental justice. Groups facing discrimination and injustice because of their class, ability, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or other factors can apply for grants to challenge injustices and create just and healthy communities. The Edge Fund is a very small fund. The maximum grant for groups is £3,000 and £1,000 for individuals. The Edge Fund will only support very small groups and have not supported any group with an annual income of over £25,000.
Previous projects supported include:
Hammersmith & Fulham Coalition Against Cuts (£2,800). Hammersmith and Fulham Coalition Against Cuts (HAFCAC) is a campaign group led by and for disabled and older people in the London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham formed to challenge cuts that are marginalising communities and targeting the poorest and most disadvantaged members of society.
