We are very grateful for the support and vision of the following organisations and people:

The Tudor Trust provided the seed funding to set up Transition Network, and have provided much support.  We are highly grateful for their vision and generosity.  They are currently contributing to our core work in catalysing and supporting the Transition movement and developing as an organisation.  They are also part-funding the costs of our Delivery Director. 

The Bromley Trust are helping fund our core work, and we are honoured by their ongoing support.  They are a leading funder of environmental work, human rights and prison reform. 

The Network for Social Change provided donations for two causes:  seed-funding for the work of National Hubs co-ordinating Transition work in non-UK countries; and to support the pilot Transition Free Press.  We are also hugely grateful to a Network for Social Change individual member who has for many years funded a member of staff to support Rob Hopkins’ work inspiring the Transition movement and catalysing new action. 

The V. Kann Rasmussen Foundation has made a significant donation to support the international work of Transition Network.  We thank them deeply for their wonderful support for our work on climate change and peak oil. 

Roger Ross of Lots Road Auctions has provided regular donations which have played a crucial and vital part of our core funding, underpinning all of our work supporting, catalysing and advancing the Transition movement, for which we thank him wholeheartedly. 

We are delighted to have won the European Economic and Social Committee’s Civil Society Prize in December 2012.
