In response to the Covid-19 pandemic and the effects of climate change, the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation is launching a new strategy, which will focus on three interdependent aims:
- Improving the natural world:
- Tackling injustice to deliver a fairer future;
- Creative, confident communities.
Under the new strategy, the Foundation will be providing larger and longer-term grants of over £30,000, as well as social investments of between £100,000 and £2 million to charities or initiatives with ideas working towards these aims. The new strategy is supported by the need to tackle structural inequality, racism and the causes and impacts of climate change.
Funding can be used to cover core or project costs, including staff salaries and overheads. Collaborative approaches are encouraged.
Expressions of interest can be submitted at any time.
