The Esmee Fairbairn Foundation likes to consider work which others may find hard to fund, perhaps because it breaks new ground, appears too risky, requires core funding, or needs a more unusual form of financial help.
The Foundation’s main interests are cultural life, education and learning, the natural environment and enabling disadvantaged people to participate more fully in society. There are no deadlines and applications are accepted on a rolling basis. The average grant size is £50,000. Find out more at the Esmee Fairbairn website.
