The Grantham Foundation
The Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment
The Grantham Institute - Climate Change and the Environment was launched in February 2007 with the announcement of a multi-million pound donation from the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment.
This donation is the largest sum of private funding given to climate change research in the UK and enables us to build on Imperial's extensive expertise in climate change research and policy as we work towards a more secure future. The Granthams hope that their donation will motivate other individuals to support research into the causes, consequences and mitigation of climate change with a view to informing policy on an international scale.
The Grantham Family established the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment in 1997. The Foundation supports natural resource conservation projects both in the US and internationally. Jeremy Grantham is a well-known investment manager and chairman of Boston-based investment firm, GMO. Hannelore Grantham is Director of the Grantham Foundation.
The Foundation also supports our partner institutes: the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment (London School of Economics), the Divecha Centre for Climate Change (Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore) and the Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures (University of Sheffield).
The Grantham Institute - Climate Change and the Environment also receives support from Imperial College London, and a number of other sources on a case by case basis.
