Shell Foundation aims to invest in activities that advance its charitable objectives. Since our launch in 2000, we have invested in many sustainable solutions to poverty and environment-related challenges.During our growth we have, as planned, moved away from being a traditional “reactive” or passive grant maker towards taking a proactive approach in identifying strategic partners and in the development and design of the initiatives we want to support.In making this shift, it is important to note that we have not become what’s known as an ‘Operating’ Foundation – i.e. one that only supports projects which it operates directly. Instead, we prefer to work through external strategic partners who deliver and manage initiatives, and who, wherever possible and appropriate, are able to make financial and in-kind investments themselves. In many cases, particularly in our larger programmes, we take an active part in their overall governance.We are also expanding the ways in which we provide financial support, to include not only grants, but also loans, guarantees and other vehicles. Support is tailored to achieve the greatest and most cost effective contribution to achieving our charitable objectives. For these reasons, we no longer encourage the submission of unsolicited project and funding proposals. However, it is important for us to stay informed of activities and other groups (non-profit as well as commercial) that relate to our explicit areas of interest, both thematically and geographically. We are also keen to engage with interested parties around new ideas, challenges and concepts that address our core areas of concern.

FUNDING

Funding Principles


Foundation policy towards grant and funding applications and broader engagement.

Shell Foundation aims to invest in activities that advance its charitable objectives. Since our launch in 2000, we have invested in many sustainable solutions to poverty and environment-related challenges.

During our growth we have, as planned, moved away from being a traditional “reactive” or passive grant maker towards taking a proactive approach in identifying strategic partners and in the development and design of the initiatives we want to support.

In making this shift, it is important to note that we have not become what’s known as an ‘Operating’ Foundation – i.e. one that only supports projects which it operates directly. Instead, we prefer to work through external strategic partners who deliver and manage initiatives, and who, wherever possible and appropriate, are able to make financial and in-kind investments themselves. In many cases, particularly in our larger programmes, we take an active part in their overall governance.

We are also expanding the ways in which we provide financial support, to include not only grants, but also loans, guarantees and other vehicles. Support is tailored to achieve the greatest and most cost effective contribution to achieving our charitable objectives.

For these reasons, we no longer encourage the submission of unsolicited project and funding proposals. However, it is important for us to stay informed of activities and other groups (non-profit as well as commercial) that relate to our explicit areas of interest, both thematically and geographically. We are also keen to engage with interested parties around new ideas, challenges and concepts that address our core areas of concern.
