Esmée’s 2017 Annual Report

In 2017, we...

... provided £44.6m in funding to exceptional organisations working in the Arts, with Children and Young People, for the Environment, Food or Social Change (£40.5m in grants and £4.1m in social investments). We gave 150 of the organisations we fund additional "grants plus" support - our highest level ever - and our endowment topped £1bn at year end. 

In these times of political uncertainty, the flexibility, continuity and long-term aims of independent funders are even more needed.
