Welcome to the Ashden Trust

Global WitnessThe Ashden Trust is a grant-making charity established in 1989 and is one of the Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts. We primarily support programmes focusing on climate change, sustainable development, or improving the quality of life in poorer communities.

You can find out more about the Trust and the kinds of projects we have supported, as well as checking whether you are eligible to apply for funding by following the links on the left hand side of this page.

Until April 2017, the Trust is undertaking a review of its work over the last 26 years and is not inviting any grant applications.

During this period, as well as undertaking a review, the Trust will continue its work with the Climate Change Collaboration and Divest Invest and establish a new low carbon enterprise fund.
