We are an independent charitable trust improving the quality of life of people in our community by investing and distributing funds on behalf of a wide range of donors.
Since 1996 our donors have distributed £30 million of charitable funding directly into Essex, Southend and Thurrock making it a great place to live, work, learn and grow.
As one of the UK’s leading, accredited community foundations we have the expertise and local knowledge to help individuals, families, companies and public agencies to support the local causes and charities close to their heart and close to home.
We have awarded over 7,000 grants to support a variety of voluntary organisations and projects. To view some of these, click here.
