Our community fund

At Saffron we have an endowment fund with Essex Community Foundation (ECF) Registered Charity Number 1052061. The fund is invested to maximise resources for grant giving now and in the future.

ECF matches applications from voluntary organisations and individuals to the funds we hold and also manages Saffron flow-through funds from various efforts such as the Community Choir and staff events.

Our grant panel, made up of both Saffron Staff and members, meet annually with ECF to consider applications and to distribute the funds available.

Grants awarded via our Community Fund

Thanks to your hard work, sponsorship, Choir, dress down and the Society Endowment Fund with Essex Community Foundation, we have a massive total of £16,000 to give to worthy causes in 2019.
