Funding local projects via community grants...

For over 30 years, a key part of what we have achieved through our fundraising events is providing financial support to numerous local community projects.

At the end of each year we open applications for any non profit making local community based project to apply for a community grant. Applications are reviewed by the committee and funds awarded based on the project benefits to the residents of the Thaxted community.

Past community grants have included:

  • Replace School Equipment at Thaxted Primary School

  • Purchase sports kits and equipment for Thaxted Rangers

  • The town's celebration of the Queen's 90th Birthday 

Donation Jar

Applications for our Community Grants open on 1st November 2023. 


To apply simply click on the downloadable pdf Community Grant Application Form and complete your submission.

To be eligible, your organisation or project must be:

  • Not-for profit

  • Not personally owned or for personal financial gain

  • Serving the community of Thaxted

  • Located within in the parish of Thaxted.

Applications must be received by 2pm on 31st December 2023, by e-mail to or by post to the Trust’s Secretary at Cobblers, 57 Newbiggen Street, Thaxted, Essex CM6 2QS. 


Applications will be assessed by the Trustees/Committee of the Trust during January. The success of all applications and the amount of each grant subsequently distributed is entirely at the discretion of the Trustees/Committee of the Trust. Distributions will be made by the end of February. Applications for funding for a major project or where the timing of funding is significant may be made out with the normal application period and will be considered at the discretion of the Trustees/Committee.
