Edge Fund is a grantmaking body with a difference: we support efforts to achieve social, economic and environmental justice, and to end imbalances of wealth and power.

  About us News


Edge Fund values

Edge believes that if we are to create a world free of injustice and inequality we need to completely change the way our societies are organised. These are our values:

  • Lived experience is key
    Lived experience is key

    “Nothing about us without us is for us.” Members score applications, ensuring we fund groups with lived experience of what they seek to change.

  • Challenge conventional funding
    Challenge conventional funding

    Conventional philanthropy is often dependent on the whims of the wealthy and rarely addresses the root causes of our problems. This needs shaking up!

  • Making funding easier
    Making funding easier

    Applying to Edge is as straightforward as we can make it, though we’re always looking at ways to remove the hoops both before and after funding.

  • Not separated by difference
    Not separated by difference

    We want to challenge transphobia, homophobia, ableism, racism and sexism. And not only in what we fund, but also how we fund.

  • Inequality disempowers

    We want to dismantle the systems that perpetuate economic injustice and patriarchy

  • The climate emergency is here
    The climate emergency is here

    This disproportionately affects those who face other forms of oppression - climate justice and racial justice are needed to address it.

Our grants
