Expression of Interest form – Groups

Expressions of Interest are welcome at any time. We recommend you read our Eligibility Criteria before submitting an Expression of Interest.

Please note that we do not award retrospective grants – be sure to allow plenty of time to go through the grants process. We would recommend you allow a minimum of 3 months.

We have launched our Surrey Coronavirus Response Fund to support groups assisting in the relief effort at this time. If you think this Fund is best suited to your current needs, further information can be found here. However, you can complete the Expression of Interest below for all Funds, including the Surrey Coronavirus Response Fund.

Using the form below, please tell us what you want to do and how much you would like to apply for. If we have a donor fund that fits with what you want to do, we will invite you to apply and give you a deadline.
