Esmée Fairbairn Foundation’s strategy extended to 2027

This month, Esmée’s Trustee Board agreed a two-year extension to our 2020 strategy, committing to our current funding priorities to the end of 2027.

We first launched our strategy in October 2020, focusing on three strategic aims: Our Natural World, A Fairer Future, and Creative, Confident Communities. We also set out a new approach to how we deliver our strategy, playing a more active role by using our range of tools – in addition to grants and social investments – to effect change.

In the last few years, we have seen new crises such as the COVID pandemic and rising cost of living compound long-standing problems for both people and nature. By extending our strategy to 2027, we are making a longer-term commitment to support the systemic change that we want to see: to improve our natural world, secure a fairer future, and strengthen the bonds in communities in the UK.
