1. Introduction.

Part of the mission of The Wisdom Trust and one of our key charitable objectives is to help our members reduce their personal carbon footprint at home, at school, in the office or in their community. Firstly, we do this by educating members with hundreds of simple things they can do themselves (our eco tips) and secondly, we offer a grants scheme to help them fund projects at home or in the office which help them to save energy, (hopefully, to save money as well) and to reduce their carbon footprint.

With all our advances in science and technology, it's possible today to design and build buildings that generate energy rather than consume it.


2. The Wisdom Trust Grant Fund.

One of the privileges of becoming a Wisdom Trust member – or a friend of The Wisdom Trust – is that you can build your entitlement to a special Wisdom Trust grant fund in your name. And one of the uses of this special grant fund is to apply for a Wisdom Trust Eco Grant to help offset the costs of energy efficiency initiatives at home or in the office.

Your special Wisdom Trust grant fund starts at a value of zero when you first register. Then, from that point on, little by little, you can add value to your fund every time you log in and use the website's free built-in education programmes to earn credits (Fundraising Credits – or FC’s), or when you shop online or take advantage of any of our special free offers.


3. Spread The Word And Get Even More Benefit.

Furthermore, if you help us spread the word and introduce your friends, family, classmates and colleagues, primarily to help you support your own favourite charity or good cause with their votes, an added benefit is that your own personal Wisdom Trust grant fund accrues extra value for the credits (FC's) they earn through their use of our website and whenever they shop online or take advantage of any our special free offers.

This is because our website recognises the fact that you introduced them and that we wouldn’t have the opportunity to engage with those new members without you introducing them in the first place. So it’s almost like a special ongoing ‘thank-you’ to you for helping us spread the word.

Not only that, the bigger your own personal network or ‘family tree’ of friends and family grows, the more people will be helping build the value of your own Wisdom Trust grant fund.

So your fund will accrue extra value for the activity of your friends’ friends and family, the friends of your friends’ friends, and so on, down through at least eight generation of friends and family. In fact, your fund will grow every time anyone in your personal network logs in, uses the website’s built-in education programmes to earn credits, and when they shop online or take advantage of any of our special free offers.

There are several ways you can then use the value of your fund to make a difference, and, as we said just now, one of these ways is to apply for a Wisdom Trust Eco Grant. This can be used to help offset the cost of items like solar panels, wind turbines, boiler controls, energy efficient lightbulbs or draft excluders, for example.

Items for which we will allow grants to be used must be approved by The Carbon Trust, for their advertised purpose.

The total solar and wind energy available on earth, if properly harnessed, could provide over 5,000 times the world's total energy requirements each year.


4. How Are Eco Grant Applications Processed?

Once an application for an Eco Grant has been processed The Wisdom Trust will locate a local, fully-accredited supplier of the required item who will contact the member to arrange delivery and, if appropriate, installation. If the grant is for less than 100% of the total cost, we will advise the member of the balance that is due, and they will need to settle that amount separately with the relevant supplier, either prior to or at installation.

To apply for an Eco Grant, the value of your Wisdom Trust Grant Fund must exceed £10 and you must be active at that time (i.e. with at least 200 FC's this month or last month). To start the process, use the link from within the [Gold Money Options] page from the [Members] menu, when you're logged in.
