Posted · Add Comment

Essex Community Foundation (ECF) gives out grants to Essex-based voluntary and community organisations totally £1.5 million each year. They are urging more voluntary groups and charities to make applications for grants to strengthen their work and make more of an impact in Essex. Caroline Taylor, programmes director for ECF says: “Grants are available for most aspects of voluntary and charity work including capital projects, equipment and running costs. We are very interested in hearing from new organisations involved in the community and equally we are happy to revisit organisations which may have had funds from ECF in the past. The grants awarded average at around £3,500 but larger amounts can be allocated. We are always pleased to talk to any organisation in Essex which is looking for funding and we want to emphasise that the application process is very easy.” If you are thinking of applying you can phone ECF in the first instance, or visit their website for more information: 01245 355947 or www.essexcommunityfoundation.org.uk
