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:

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!
