Esmee Fairbairn Foundation has a £45m social investment fund and has been actively investing since 2008.
We invest in a broad range of investment structures supporting charities and social enterprises within the UK. Investments must align with at least one of our funding priorities within our sectors of interest - Children & Young People, Arts, Environment, Food and Social Change. Details of our funding priorities are available on our website.
We are particularly interested in innovative approaches and models that have the potential to disrupt a market or create systemic change. We support organisations and models that range from the start-up phase through to tried and tested approaches.
