Ashden Friends

Ashden Friends are not just funders – they are partners sharing our beliefs, our values and our goals. 

Together, we are backing climate solutions that lower emissions while boosting health and education, reducing inequality, raising incomes, and building happier communities.  

Supporting climate solutions as an Ashden Friend

Through their donations, Ashden Friends help us support outstanding climate solutions in the UK and developing countries. 

In return for their investment, Friends get  the feelgood factor of knowing they are making a difference – but there is much more. 

Ashden Friends are part of our community, benefitting from their connection to a network of climate champions but giving back too by sharing their own time and knowledge.

Support a fairer, better world

"As an Ashden Friend, you'll enjoy a personal connection to some of the planet's most inspiring climate champions. We'll make sure your gift creates maximum impact as we work towards a fairer, better, low-carbon world."

- Harriet Lamb, Ashden CEO
