Suffolk Community Foundation - Esmée Fairbairn Suffolk Fund

Esmée Fairbairn is working with Suffolk Community Foundation on a new grant programme, the Esmée Fairbairn Suffolk Fund.  The Fund will deliver a £500,000 investment into Suffolk to improve the quality of lives of vulnerable people, especially those living in the most deprived communities.

The Fund will accept applications from charities, community groups, and not for profit organisations, particularly those addressing the needs highlighted in the Suffolk Community Foundation’s Hidden Needs Report. Grants up to a maximum of £30,000 (over three years) are available for work in the arts, education, environment, and social change. The scheme will run over a period of three years and will be managed by the Suffolk Community Foundation.
