Sculpt the Future Foundation awards small grants to individuals and groups.
Grants of £500 – £2,000 are usually awarded, although sometimes more is available for exceptional projects at the Trustees’ discretion.
Grants will be awarded in two main categories
Creativity for Change – Waking people up to rethinking their attitudes and behaviours will play a key role in ensuring a sustainable future for our planet. We look to support socially conscious campaigns or events that utilise the creative arts, with a focus on new media, to inspire and inform environmentally positive action on a mainstream level.
Innovation for Change – Overcoming the challenges to a sustainable future will require rethinking the solutions. We support the thinkers and doers who design innovative solutions to today’s environmental problems.
Applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Applicants must demonstrate how their project fits into either the Creativity for Change or Innovation for Change category
- Applicants must show that their project is sustainable, with clear, measurable deliverables towards an identified goal
- Applicants will be expected to be accountable to the Foundation and deliver bi-annual reports on the progress of the project, with a clear record of how the grant money is spent
- Applicants must make clear that the grant range available from the Foundation will make a meaningful contribution to the project for which funding is being sought
