Providing supportĀ for women in need

The Foundation is able to offer a certain number of grants and loans (repayable grants) each year. These can be awarded to financially unsupported women (eg single, separated, divorced, widowed) who are:

  • women living within the county of Cambridgeshire and over 40
  • widows or ex-wives of Church of England clergy, retired clergywomen, missionaries, or other women with a close professional connection with the Church of England.

The amountĀ of any award will depend on the type of help required, and all decisions are at the discretion of the Board of Trustees.

Occasionally we also award ‘annual grants’, or regular support payments, to older women, normally over 60. These are reviewed annually. Any applicant for a grant or a loan will automatically be considered for an ‘annual grant’.

Please contact the Foundation if you would like an application form to apply for a grant.
