Launched in 2009, the Charity Employees Benevolent Fund has supported over 260 charity workers and their families. As at end July 2012 no further applications can be accepted and CEBF trustees have announced, with great regret, that the charity will close in September 2012 due to a lack of funds.
The hard work of people who work for charities makes a difference to millions of people. Sadly CEBF will no longer be able to help them when they hit a tough patch. Applicants are advised to contact Turn2Us for advice.
“You helped me in my desperation, not only with providing me with the cost of the CRB check for my new job and paying of the remainder of my gas bill, but also providing me with advice and kindness when I was so desperate….
… I really do not know what people would do without charities like yourselves.”
