The Eye Grammar School Fund (Registered Charity 273613)
The Charity is a Trust set up by the Charity Commissioners in 1977 to provide grants of money to young people and educational organisations in the locality. The capital for the fund came from the proceeds of the sale of the Eye Grammar School building.
The Trustees meet quarterly to consider applications and grants. Applications must come from individuals or organisations serving people under 25 who live in the parishes of Eye, Athelington, Bedfield or Horham. The special grants are intended to cover expenses not provided by the local education authority. These might include the cost of purchasing books, clothing, tools and instruments, course fees for educational purposes or in preparation to enter a trade or occupation.
