Esmee Fairbairn Foundation increases grants in response to cost of living crisis

In recognition of the extraordinary rise in the cost of living over the past year, the funder Esmee Fairbairn Foundation recently committed an extra £7.4m to organisations we fund that are being affected by rising costs.

In January, the foundation will be offering an uplift payment for most grants made in or before 2022, where work is ongoing in January 2023 and is being affected by rising costs.

The payment will represent 10% of Esmée’s most recent grant payment made in 2022 as well as any further outstanding grant payments (capped at a maximum payment of £60,000).

This is a huge move by one of the bigger funders and Support Cambridgeshire applauded this move, hoping others will follow in 2023.
