Church Burgesses Educational Foundation

The Church Burgesses Educational Foundation was set up to promote the education of those under 25 years of age who, or whose parents, are resident in the City of Sheffield. It makes grants to schools, educational organisations and individuals. Funding is given to a wide variety of activities which include one-off or special projects in schools, church-based youth and education work, and to other organisations operating in this field.

Grants may also be made to those with special needs as well as to gifted individuals who incur exceptional expenses in developing their skills in the field of the arts and sport. Modest awards are also made to assist participation in gap year expeditions, medical electives and similar activities.

The Foundation gives financial assistance to many musical activities in schools, at Sheffield Cathedral, and more widely in the community and has good links with arts organisations all of which support enables beneficiaries to extend their work with young people.

It is developing schemes with training organisations with a view to helping young men and women through apprenticeships or internships in trades and crafts.

The Foundation does not normally fund higher education courses.
