Environmental Fundraising


Environmental Fundraising

The Diocese has committed to becoming net zero carbon by 2030. Increasingly we are seeing successful environmental projects amongst parishes and support through grants and funders is available to the right projects. When we speak of environmental projects what type of thing do we mean? 

  • Solar panels
  • heat pump installation
  • Insulation works
  • Promoting biodiversity
  • Environmental education
  • Greening of transport (cycle to
  • church, car charging points)

This is a non exhaustive list.

Ways in which parishes can raise funds for environmental projects include:

  • Trusts and foundations
  • Individual donations
  • Events fundraising
  • Major donors
  • Legacies
  • Corporate support
  • Public sector funding

The Church of England website contains very useful information and guidance about how to fund environmental projects at your church: Click Here
