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 keyLived 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 fundingChallenge 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 easierMaking 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 differenceNot 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 disempowersInequality disempowers
We want to dismantle the systems that perpetuate economic injustice and patriarchy
The climate emergency is hereThe climate emergency is here
This disproportionately affects those who face other forms of oppression - climate justice and racial justice are needed to address it.
We are passionate believers in 'participatory grantmaking', where the funder and the funded work together to decide where the money goes.
We have awarded over £500,000 in grants since 2013
