Finances & Funding
Positive Money is a not-for-profit company and receives income from a network of committed individual supporters, and a few charitable trusts.
We have attracted funding from a number of trusts that prioritise the environment, the reduction of poverty, debt and inequality, and social justice. These trusts have recognised that our current banking and monetary system is a significant contributor to some of the main social and economic problems that we face today.
The trusts below have provided funding to help us get set up and established, but we depend on the support of individuals in order to keep campaigning for a banking system that works in the interests of ordinary people. If you can, please help with a small monthly donation.

R H Southern Trust
The RH Southern Trust funds projects that address society’s conflict with nature and the present dysfunctional economy. It also funds technologies that relieve disabilities. It is a family trust and two of the trustees are Quakers. The Trust has long-term involvement with the few projects it chooses and a particular interest in India.
The James Gibb Stuart Trust is a registered charity, based in Glasgow and established in April 2008. Its mission is to improve public education about economic theory and practice. Its vision is the reduction of overall levels of debt in society, at a personal, national, and international level, to the benefit of all, financially and socially. It creates, operates and supports educational projects which are in accord with its charitable objectives.
Friends Provident are providing Positive Money with funding from their ‘Towards a resilient economy’ programme. The aim of this funding programme is to contribute to a more resilient, fairer and sustainable economics system. The project being funded is for Positive Money to carry out influencing work to try and open a much wider discussion around money creation and monetary policy among civil society, policy makers, and economists.
