Acorn Fund

Our Acorn Fund was our very first fund – starting small in 1996.  As more people and businesses have become aware of us and made donations, the fund has steadily grown.

Each year, through this Fund we help charities, voluntary and community organisations working in Essex that are providing a wide range of vital support to people in need and to date, this totals around £1 million.

The Acorn Fund is an ideal way to start your journey with us. A one-off gift or a regular donation will help to support local voluntary and community organisations, and can also be used by the trustees to support ECF, including its development and growth.

Whatever your level of giving or area of interest, the Acorn Fund is a great way to support local charities and voluntary organisations and make a difference in your community.

You can give online now or contact Perry Norton, Head of Development, to set up a regular payment.
