A Phased Fundraising Approach

To ensure the success of this project, we are phasing project activities and costs based on pledges received from our fundraising activities.

  • Phase 1: Donations already received have paid for an art consultant to organise an invited competition to choose a short-list of emerging and well-known artists. We have also done initial feasibilities on numerous sites in the City of London. This phase also includes paying for design proposals from the short-list of artists, communications support, project management and fundraising.
  • Phase 2: Once we have received pledges from corporate donors, we will then commission the artist. Specifically, this phase will pay for the artist fees and associated costs such as materials, installation, maintenance, insurance, surveying and planning applications. There will also be project management, communication, fundraising, PR and event unveiling costs within this phase.

Why Support this Project?

Funding this project is a unique opportunity to raise awareness and visually engage the finance community and the wider public – both present and future, on the centrality of sustainable finance to our common future. If you choose to support this project, you will help deliver a first-of-its-kind project that will become an enduring symbol of the green finance movement itself.


We are now in Phase 2 of our fundraising and are mainly seeking corporate pleges. If you would like a copy of our corporate proposal, please contact Ciara Shannon.
