Esmée Fairbairn Foundation Launches New Funding Strands

Author ecorrn     Categories

The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation is launching three exciting new approaches to its funding: a new funding strand based on Food, a pilot programme of work in Northern Ireland and a Finance Fund.

Food:
Aims to promote an understanding of the role of food in enhancing quality of life.  We are interested in work that influences policy and practice across a range of food-related areas, enabling as many people in the UK as possible to access, prepare and eat nutritious, sustainable food. The budget is £3million over the next three years.

Finance Fund:
Offers financing to projects or organisations that can demonstrate the need for investment and the capacity to manage the demands of non-grant funding.  Arrangements could include loans, guarantees, equity or quasi-equity finance.  At this stage, the programme will not be open to unsolicited applications.  Up to £15million will be available for funding of this kind.
