Digital Grants Programme

2 October 2022

Voluntary and community organisations in Essex are invited to apply for funding to develop and improve their digital services.

The ‘Digital Grants Programme’, which is managed by Essex Community Foundation (ECF), helps voluntary organisations to make use of digital technology and improve the experience their beneficiaries have.

Through this Programme, organisations have been able to improve their websites, introduce CRM systems and databases, launch new ways people can access help including through online appointments, and upskill staff and volunteers.

The average grant from this Programme is £9,500 and ECF encourage you to speak with the grants team about your digital project before applying.

ECF are keen for organisations involved to collaborate with others that have received funding, and will make introductions with others under this programme, where they can share their learning and hear from digital experts.

How to apply:

Call the ECF grants team on 01245 356018 to discuss your ideas in advance of applying.

Alternatively, you can email or book a call with a member of the team here.

There is no deadline, but please be aware that funding decisions may take up to two months.
