Acorn Fund

If you want to support local charitable activity, but are not sure which organisations exist or if your money will be used effectively, making a donation to ECF’s Acorn Fund could give you the confidence and peace of mind that you need.

The Acorn Fund was the first endowed fund established by ECF in 1996. Donations of all sizes are pooled together to grow this unrestricted fund which enables ECF to respond to the growing needs of local communities by providing much-needed funding, year on year, to local charities and voluntary organisations.

Donors to this fund can be confident that the grants awarded are helping to catalyse change and fund innovative solutions to our county’s most challenging problems. When you give to the Acorn Fund you are helping to meet the needs of our community today and for years to come.

To make a donation, please call Perry Norton, Head of Development, on 01245 355947.
