We have made films to show the work of our grantholders, give advice on applying to the Foundation, and to explore issues we care about.

50 Years

2011 was the year of the 50th anniversary of the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.  In the five decades since we were established we have channelled over £400 million into the arts, education and learning, the environment and social change. To mark our 50th birthday we commissioned a short film with some stories about what we do.
