Transition Buxton is funded entirely through donations.
We aim to keep our costs to a minimum, so all the work we do is on a completely voluntary basis. We don’t make a charge for any of our events because we want them to be accessible to everyone regardless of means. Inevitably though, we do incur costs – hosting of the website, hire of rooms and equipment, insurance, licences for film screenings, materials for workshops, speakers expenses and so on. We try to ensure that events cover their own costs, through donations, but that isn’t always possible.
We accept funding from charitable trusts, this is usually only available for specific projects. We also raise funds at our annual street collection and plant swap. And we gratefully accept donations from our members and supporters.
