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.
