Funding for Energy Efficiency Work

Is your church undertaking some energy efficiency plans – and looking for funding? Here are some thoughts on first steps

Diocesan Grants

Implementation Grants

If you’ve had a diocesan energy audit, you’re eligible to apply for an implementation grant up to the cost of the audit. Contact energy.audits@oxford.anglican.org to receive the form.

Top-up Grants

The diocese has received some funding from our partners at Trust for Oxfordshire’s Environment, which we can use to top up the implementation grants by a small amount for key energy efficiency projects that churches would find difficult to fund. If you’d like to know more, email energy.audits@oxford.anglican.org.

 

Funding advice from the National Church

The Parish Resources team have put together a useful guide to Charitable Grants for Churches, which includes a section on ‘Environmental and Sustainability Projects’

The Church of England website also has useful step-by-step Funding and Capital Appeals Guidance

 

Other Grant Funding

Oxfordshire Community and Voluntary Action has a list of funders that give environmental grants for projects in Oxfordshire (and often beyond).
