Helping people thrive


We provide expertise in local needs and causes, allowing you to make your charitable giving tangible and relevant to the area in which your business operates. Our flexible giving options ensure your investment is tied closely to your company values and wider corporate social responsibility objectives including employee engagement and publicity. As an EECF donor you will also be joining a community of funders, offering the opportunity for best practice sharing and networking with other City and Canary Wharf businesses.

Depending on your company's priorities and the level of investment you wish to make, EECF has a range of tax effective giving options:

Set Up A Charitable Fund

Create your own bespoke grants programme which matches your interests with the needs on the ground. With as little or much input as you want, EECF can help you set up, administer and manage your grants programme to ensure that you are able to achieve maximum impact through your investment.

Our grants development and management service offers all of the following elements-

  • Programme Design
  • Promotion 
  • Capacity Building and Grant Support Services 
  • Assessment Process 
  • Due Diligence
  • Reporting and Impact Assessment

Support a Programme

EECF runs a range of direct delivery programmes and events ranging from training and employment programmes supporting local people to access employment opportunities to mentoring programmes supporting students to improve their literacy and numeracy skills. Many of these programmes are limited in size and scope due to available funding and your support could help us continue and extend our programmes to reach even more local people.

"The beauty of EECF is that you can make a substantial investment into them and they will then in turn redistribute that across the grassroots organisations that desperately need support".
