£3 million awarded in grants!

Posted on: July 13, 2018

We are delighted to announce that, in the past 12 months, ECF has awarded grants totalling £3 million to support the work of local charities, voluntary organisations and individuals in Essex.

Caroline Taylor, chief executive, said: “To have channelled this amount of funding into local communities over the last year is a significant achievement.  The grants have made a difference in so many ways, including helping people in need, supporting those who are vulnerable and increasing skills and educational opportunities. They have also helped to reduce social isolation, enhanced community spaces and improved facilities for the benefit of local people.

“As one of the largest grant funders of the voluntary sector in Essex, we are committed to working with people who want to channel their charitable giving into the county and to making our application process for funding as straightforward as possible.”

“We are always interested to discuss potential applications and how ECF can help people and companies with their charitable giving. Please call me or Jo Macaulay on 01245 355947 or look at our website for more information.”
