The Friends Provident Foundation provides financial support to projects that promote a more resilient, sustainable and fairer economic system, not just in terms of poverty, but also inequality.
The Foundation works on two levels:
- Systems change which aims to support work that can help to transform corporate behaviour, and to stimulate change in the current financial system.
- Building local economic resilience which aims to test and review local or small-scale initiatives that build economic resilience through diversity, flexibility and building capabilities.
Trustees will consider applications for grants, loans, underwriting or other forms of financial support.
Previous organisations supported include:
ECHO, a trading network of over 500 organisations in East London that uses time as the currency, rather than money. This project received a grant of £140,000 and aims to develop and refine the infrastructure for local, sustainable Echo systems at national scale.
The next closing date for applications is the 2nd November 2015.
