Who can apply?
Applications must be from an Anglican organisation. This could be a PCC or perhaps a church school seeking to work with others to create a project for the benefit of the wider community. All applications where the project involves work on a church building will require the support of the relevant archdeacon and also faculty approval.
Note that groups can only receive continuous funding for a maximum of two years.
Please see Suffolk Community Foundation’s grant making guidelines here for full details of what it cannot support.
