Bulb Foundation was launched in 2019 to reflect Bulb's belief in the power of business for good. Bulb fight the climate crisis every day by providing affordable, renewable energy. But they wanted to do more.
Now, every time a new member switches to Bulb, £1 is donated to Bulb Foundation, on top of the £1 already donated to Trees for Cities. We use that money to make grants to other charities and social enterprises tackling the climate crisis head on.
We support projects fighting the climate crisis
Fighting the climate crisis means two things: slowing the progress of climate change and helping people already coping with its effects. We'll announce our first partnerships soon, but in short, we seek out organisations with great ideas. Then we give them the money they need to succeed.
We want our funds to have the biggest impact possible, so we focus on high-risk ideas at an early stage of development that could have a global impact. And we measure carefully what they achieve.
We're independent of Bulb
Our Board of Trustees is responsible for governing Bulb Foundation. They set our strategic direction and decide what we should fund.
From left to right, they are: Bulb's co-founders, Hayden and Amit, climate change experts Sophie Pullan, Alex Edwards and Allison Robertshaw (not pictured). Our Foundation Manager Kate Franks runs things day-to-day.
