Esmee Fairbairn makes social investments into social impact organisations and funds that are achieving impact in line with the Foundation's Impact Goals - Our Natural World, A Fairer Future and Creative Confident Communities. 

We take an impact-first approach to social investment. We start with the social or environmental need and tailor the investment: adapting and selecting financial instruments that are the most appropriate.


We offer social investments of between £100,000 and £2,000,000 to organisations with charitable aims and mission.  We can support more commercially based activities where it is clear that the organisation's primary purpose is social impact. 

Please read our social impact aims - if you believe your organisation's social impact aligns and you have or are developing a proposal for repayable finance, get in touch to see if we can help.
