Fowler Smith & Jones Trust
Posted on: October 5, 2019
The Fowler Smith & Jones Trust (FSJ) is an independent Trust supporting a wide-range of charities and other organisations throughout Essex. The Trust aims to make a significant difference to Essex through supported projects.
Particular focus is on helping develop young people into better members of society through preventative intervention. There is also strong emphasis on other marginalised or disadvantaged members of the community eg the elderly, isolated or disabled.
The Trustees hold 3 grant-giving meetings p.a. There is no formal application form, as each request to the Trust is unique. There are no fixed criteria, and the application process is accessible and flexible.
Any potential applicant is encouraged to contact the Grants administration team to discuss the best way forward. This saves much unnecessary work on both sides.
The majority of grants fall between £1-5,000. There are also a few Capital Grants granted during the year (usually up to £25,000) for larger projects.
