Greener Futures Fund

This fund is now closed. Please sign up to our monthly grants ebulletin (opens in a new window) to stay up to date with our grants that are currently open.

The Greener Futures Fund was created by Grosvenor in 2021. The aim of the Greener Futures Fund is to empower communities to take local action on climate change. It is now entering its second round which will benefit communities in Westminster.

The Greener Futures Fund is managed by The London Community Foundation and is open to proposals for work taking place in Westminster. The fund is particularly interested in projects based in Mayfair and Belgravia and will prioritise funding applications delivering work in these areas.

What can the fund support?

Applications must clearly be about local climate action and should meet at least one of the following priorities:

  • Have a positive impact on the local environment
  • Encourage local people to get involved in grass roots environmental activities
  • Raise awareness of climate change and changing behaviours leading to more local environmental action
  • Develop and share knowledge about the environment with others locally
  • Provide skills, training or job opportunities for local people connected to the climate response
  • Improve access to nature and nature-based climate solutions

Applicants may be based anywhere, but the funded work must benefit communities in Westminster, with priority given to those benefitting South Westminster, especially Mayfair and Belgravia. Applicants must demonstrate good local knowledge and / or local partnership and be able to report on the impact of their work.

Grants for individuals and new projects

This fund is also open to organisations that are interested in holding and administering a central fund which will in turn award small grants (up to £500) to individuals and/or small groups that want to research, test or grow their ideas to support climate action in Westminster. - You will need to demonstrate that you have a robust grant making procedure and appropriate checks. - If you are interested in this please contact the London Community Foundation before applying.

Join a briefing

On Friday 10th March from 3pm. Grosvenor is hosting a session for Westminster-based community groups and charities to learn more about the funds available to them.

Size of Grant

Grants of £5,000 to £20,000 per year for 1-2 years. The panel are keen to fund a range of grant sizes. Where applications are requesting the grants at the higher end of the range it is expected that they will be able to demonstrate greater impact and will reach larger numbers of beneficiaries.
