Gower Street (formerly The Marple Charitable Trust) is a small family foundation that was set up by Nick and Sophie Marple to fund education work in the UK and Ghana,  In 2018 Gower Street pivoted the majority of its funds to addressing the climate crisis and in recognition of the urgency of the situation decided to disperse all their funds before 2030.  The trust focuses their funding on small organisations, supporting them to scope and validate their ideas,  enabling them to approach larger funders to help them further scale.
