Who we are
In 1969 Sir James Herbert Hamilton Colyer-Fergusson created the Colyer-Fergusson Charitable Trust. Over forty years have passed since his generous and philanthropic act and during that time the Trustees have made grants in his honour to preserve beautiful Kent churches, promote musical and academic excellence and support the local communities of Kent. In recent years the Trust has made grants to improve the quality of life of local people by funding community projects that tackle poverty and social exclusion. It has also supported the sustainability of local churches and in particular their role as an important community resource. The trustees are pleased to acknowledge and celebrate the Trust's achievements, but they are not complacent. They regularly review and revise their funding policies to ensure that Trust money continues to be well spent.
