Edging in

In November, the activist-led grant-making group, the Edge Fund, held its first ‘Forum for Radical Sharing’ in Manchester, one of several initiatives coming out of a review earlier in the year.

Among other things, Edge has amended its policy on faith-based groups, and now says individuals and groups with a religious purpose are welcome to apply, but Edge does not fund ‘any activity, initiative or project where the primary aim is to promote religion’.

New Philanthropy Capital recently named Edge as one of 10 innovations in global philanthropy that they’d like to see replicated and scaled up in the UK.
