Trusts and Foundations

We are pleased to work with trustees of existing charitable trusts to help you distribute funds in Essex or share information on local organisations that meet your criteria and need support.

If you are finding the governance, administration, grantmaking and trustee recruitment is becoming challenging, we may also be able to assist you by taking over the management of your trust.

Transferring a trust to us does not necessarily mean giving up all involvement as we are happy to work with you and your trustees for as long as you want to be involved.  Where possible we will maintain the objects of the trust, but there could be benefits in combining it one of the other trusts we manage, that has the same objects, for example, a geographic area of benefit or issue.

The process to transfer a trust to us is straightforward.  If your trust is registered with the Charity Commission you can find out more here.

If you would like to talk with us about your trust and its specific criteria and requirements, with no obligation, please call Steve Mackenzie, our Development and Operations Manager, on 01245 355947 or email Steven@essexcf.org.uk
