The Centenary Fund
The Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich was created in 1914. In 2014 the Diocese celebrated 100 years with the launch of The Centenary Fund, a meaningful legacy for future generations.
The Fund is an endowment fund where the gift forms the legacy and we use the interest to fund projects to encourage and enable churches to better serve the wider community across the Diocese. The Fund is managed by Suffolk Community Foundation and aims to support community projects such as making church buildings more accessible; provided activities for those who are isolated; supporting the work of a parish nurse; organising a learning activity with a local school or perhaps a joint church/school conservation project. These projects will add value to the work already undertaken by the Church of England in partnership with other churches and organisations.
To be eligible for funding, projects must involve an Anglian organisation, for example a Parochial Church Council or Church school, but hopefully projects will feature partnerships with community groups.
