The Edith M Ellis Trust aims to help bring about a more peaceful, just and sustainable world, embodying Quaker values through a fearless approach to social and structural innovations in policy or practice.

Quakers share a way of life, based on the values of peace, justice, equality, integrity and environmental sustainability.

The Edith M Ellis Trust gives a limited number of grants to organisations not normally able to attract other funding.
