Needs funds for radical action?
Check this out-
Edge Fund is a grant-making body with a difference. We support
efforts to achieve social, economic and environmental justice and to end
imbalances in wealth and power – and give those we aim to help a say in
where the money goes.
Existing financial and political systems benefit the privileged few
and put profit and economic growth before people and the environment. To
challenge these inequalities effectively, we believe it is critical
that decisions are made collectively, by those who donate money and
those who receive it. To this end the Edge Fund consists of donors,
activists and members of communities facing oppression and injustice.
The Edge Fund also creates opportunities for people to build alliances
with each other and share their learning and experiences.
We are committed to equality, and recognise the inherent inequalities
involved in philanthropy. When society’s inequalities have been
dissolved, the philanthropy of the wealthy will no longer exist. We are
committed to creating new and more sustainable sources of funding based
on the solidarity of the many, rather than the generosity of the few. We
also aim to challenge traditional grant-making values and practices by
being pioneering and providing a model that can be followed by others.
