Colyer-Fergusson Charitable Trust

Making a lasting difference to the people of Kent...

The charitable trust was
created in 1969 by 
Sir James Colyer-Fergusson

Nearly fifty years have passed since his generous and philanthropic act and during this time the trustees have made grants to preserve Kent churches, promote musical excellence and support the local communities of Kent.

About the Trust

The Colyer-Fergusson Charitable Trust is an independent grant-making trust which supports charitable activity in Kent. The Trust’s overarching aim is to improve the lives of people in Kent, and in particular those who are most disadvantaged.


How to apply

Disadvantaged and vulnerable young people in Kent face enormous challenges.  The recession has impacted on every community across the county, but none more so than Kent’s young people who have suffered disproportionately from a lack of employment opportunities.
