We are very grateful for the support and vision of the following organisations and people:
Supporting and broadening the Transition Movement
Artists Project Earth have provided much advice and support and have currently made it possible for us to pioneer the role of Diversity Co-ordinator to help Transition Initiatives and partners increase involvement from all classes, races and religions, so that the whole community can work together on Transition. Read the Diversity related materials here.
The Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation is contributing significantly to the costs of our Project Support Co-ordinator, as it is so important now to help increase the support and advice available to the ever-growing number of Transition Initiatives.
The Roddick Foundation and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation are providing generous support to launch our project to support businesses and social entrepreneurs to take a Transition approach, alongside their local communities. We will also be looking at the potential for local Transition economies. This project is called REconomy, or building a more equitable local economy from the ground up.
Training and consultancy
Esmée Fairbairn Foundation helped provide early seed funding for Transition Network’s training work. We are very grateful for their current support for the development and delivery of our essential and popular training courses, including the two-day Transition Training course, the Train the Trainer course, and the development of new courses.
European Commission Grundtvig Programme: Grundtvig Partnership funding helped us be part of an EU-wide collaborative partnership to develop a 2-year certified training course in a change makers journey in designing resilience.
Lush is a fresh handmade cosmetics company with a big heart (and charitable donations dedication). They are supporting our Training for Transition courses with funding to provide bursary places to people who may otherwise not be able to afford to train with us.
The company created its 'Charity Pot' to raise money and awareness about charities and campaigns for a better, fairer world. Every penny you pay, except the VAT, goes to helping those groups and the work they do.
The Tudor Trust provided the seed funding to set up Transition Network, and have provided much support. They are currently contributing to our core costs, helping us to strengthen our short-term security, further consolidate our core capacity, increase our funding diversity and complete our web platform project.
The Network for Social Change is making a significant contribution by funding a member of staff to co-ordinate volunteers and to support Rob Hopkins’ work inspiring the Transition movement and catalysing new action.
Ashoka is the global association of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs. We are proud that Rob Hopkins was elected as an Ashoka Fellow in 2009.
We are delighted that the Keep the Land Foundation are supporting our work, particularly on connections between the environment and the economy.
Communications, films, conferences and tales
Marmot Charitable Trust have made various of our ideas able to happen by contributing to the development of the Transition film, the costs of the Big Society Conference, and surveying and action on food and localisation.
The Prairie Trust helped provide support for Steph Bradley’s 6-month walking tour of Transition Initiatives: Transition Tales
Big thanks to Anna Hughes for her sterling efforts to raise money for Transition Network and Sustrans by cycling around the coastline of Britain. She wrote a very entertaining blog about it and has a Just Giving (closed) profile for her adventure.
There are other anonymous donors to whom we're immensely grateful. Every penny of their sizable contributions is appreciated.
