Essex Community Foundation

Working with other funders

The importance of developing relationships with other funders and public agencies is given full recognition by ECF, as the benefits are very clear. By establishing such links and partnerships ECF is able to leverage in funding to Essex which local charities can then access. In turn, the funder or public agency benefits from ECF’s knowledge and expertise of local needs and the issues facing the voluntary sector in Essex.

This gives everyone the confidence that funding is being directed to where it is needed most and where it can have the most impact.
