This fund has been set up by the Emergence Foundation in order to support small organisations and individuals to further the Foundation’s objectives. We anticipate distributing small grants in six rounds between 2018 and 2022. On these pages you will find all the information you need to apply for a grant.
Emergence Foundation wishes to support those whose creative passion and purpose is to give something of themselves in order to make the world a better place. The aims & intended outcomes of our funding are intentionally broad to allow for the many different ways this depth of purpose might be expressed, but in general we are awarding grants to projects that we think are aligned in some way with the purpose and objects of our charity.
