Esmée Fairbairn Foundation launched a new strategy focusing on our natural world, a fairer future and creative, confident communities.
Responding to some of the extraordinary challenges of today including climate change and the impact of COVID-19 on existing inequalities, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation is launching a new strategy, which will focus on three interdependent aims:
Improving Our Natural World
Tackling injustice to deliver A Fairer Future
Nurturing Creative, Confident Communities
Please note: Work outside of these aims will no longer be funded.
The new strategy is underpinned by the need to tackle structural inequality, racism and the causes and impacts of climate change.
Under the new strategy, they will be providing larger and longer-term grants as well as strategic support to organisations or initiatives with brilliant ideas working towards these aims. In addition to providing grants and social investments, they will also play a more active role using their influence, their position as an asset owner and the ability to broker alliances and remove barriers. This new approach will also mean making fewer grants but giving more support to help grants achieve better, and more lasting, results.
