Charles S French Charitable Trust

Applications for Grants

Grant Applications from charitable organisations based in Essex and NE London are welcomed. Applications from charities based elsewhere, but which can demonstrate activities that encompass residents within Essex and NE London or immediate surrounding areas may also be considered.

Applications must be accompanied by the latest charity accounts and should be made in writing to:

William Noble
Charles S. French Charitable Trust
169 High Road
IG10 4LF

PLEASE do not send applications by 'Signed For' or registered mail.
The CSFCT office is open only two half days each week and applications sent 'Signed For' or registered mail have to be collected from the main Post Office. This involves a 6 mile car journey to collect them and can delay your application being processed. Applications sent by standard mail will normally be acknowledged by email within a few days of arrival. Thank you!

- You understand it is in our legitimate interests to hold details about you including your name and email address because you have contacted us to apply for funding
- Where you are applying for funding on behalf of any beneficiaries whose personal data you intend to disclose to us, that you have obtained those beneficiaries' explicit consent for such disclosure
- You agree to us contacting you with news and information about the Charles S French Charitable Trust, provided that you will always be given the option to opt out from such communication.
