At British Airways, we’re on a journey to create a better, more sustainable future. We call it BA Better World. It means we’re putting sustainability at the heart of our business. From creating a great place for people to work to reducing our emissions and waste and contributing to the communities we serve, we’re building a thriving, resilient, responsible business.

For more than 30 years, British Airways has supported community initiatives across the UK and around the world. Now, with BA Better World Community Fund, we’re creating more life-changing opportunities and generating more positive impact in the communities we serve by offering up to £15,000 in extra funding to eligible projects that crowdfund.


Our actions will help make a more connected world for everyone to live in and we're excited to bring together our people, our customers and our partners to deliver this important part of what we believe will be our greatest achievement.

BA Better World - our most important journey yet
