The Foundation aims to improve the quality of life throughout the UK and takes pride in supporting work that might otherwise be considered difficult to fund.
The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation has launched a new funding strategy , which provides much more definition about what the Foundation will fund and details of its plans to introduce a single funding platform and develop an impact and effectiveness framework.
Applicants should apply for the amount that they need. The Foundation does not set limits and makes grants across a fairly wide spectrum of sizes. However, the Foundation rarely makes grants that are smaller than £5,000 and it makes only a small number of grants in excess of £500,000
