Veolia’s Sustainability Fund (with Crowdfunding) Opens for 2024 Projects

eolia’s Sustainability Fund is provided by Veolia, the UK leader in resource management, in partnership with crowdfunding platform Spacehive.

Now in its fourth year, the £100,000 Sustainability Fund aims to help grassroots community projects in transforming their local communities, providing social and environmental benefits.

The Fund offers grants (cash sponsorship) of up to £1,000, in-kind resources or staff volunteers to support not-for-profit organisations and community groups.

Veolia will match up to 50% of the money raised by groups through Spacehive up to a maximum of £1,000.

Funding is for local projects that support one or more of the following themes:

  • Enhancing biodiversity
  • Promoting sustainable waste behaviours (reduce, reuse and/or recycle)
  • Protecting or preserving resources and the environment
  • Its use of recycled, reused or reclaimed materials

The funder looks favourably on projects that have considered the long-term or ongoing benefits for the community and will consider all projects based on merit.

Larger projects that require more funding are sometimes considered.

Any not-for-profit organisation, community group or individual can apply.

Projects need to be in areas where Veolia partners with the local authority to deliver waste and cleansing services for the community.
