Welcome to the beating heart of The Ernest Cook Trust

Each year, the Trust donates around £2million of funds generated through income from our estates and investments.

Maximising the Trust’s charitable impact is vital in all that we do, but it is especially fundamental to the work of our Grants team. We are constantly evolving our grant giving activities by incorporating innovative funding models, such as match-funding and funding-plus, into our programmes. By strategically curating our funds in this way, we increase the scale, impact and influence of the Trust’s important work.

We welcome collaborations with funding partners and organisations who share our values and want to share their funding, skills and expertise.
