“I wanted to create an endowment that would last in perpetuity and help the community of Southend indefinitely into the future when its problems would be even more complex than they are now.”

Applying for a grant

An understanding of local needs leads to effective grant
making. Local people are responsible for promoting The
Southend Community Fund and make decisions on the
criteria for grant awards.
The only criteria for grant applications are that your
organisation must be active in Southend and your work must
benefit people living and working in the Borough.
To apply for a grant contact the Essex Community Foundation:
