How to apply to the Community Foundation for Surrey

Applying starts with submitting an Expression of Interest – one form to access all Donor Funds. Complete an Expression of Interest by clicking the link below and the Grants Team will be pleased to advise you on whether we can invite an application. Please read the application guidance notes.

Upcoming deadlines for full applications to our quarterly Donor Fund programme;
Friday 16th July (5pm)
Monday 18th October (9AM)

Please note there has been a small adjustment to the October deadline – to enable volunteers to use the weekend to complete applications we will now be accepting apps until 9 am on the Monday 18th October.

We would like to hear from you about your funding needs at any time; however, to be considered for a particular round please submit your Expression of Interest at least 2 weeks before these deadlines. We are currently accepting Expressions of Interest for our October deadline; please ensure you submit your Expression of Interest by 9am Monday 4th October.

For guidance, the average grant size from our Donor Funds is £6,000 – £7,000, and we may be able to secure in excess of £10,000 on occasion. Please enter the total you require for your project in the form below; we truly wish to know what your organisation needs. If we can identify a suitable Donor but feel we are unlikely to be able to secure the required amount, we will instead invite a lower amount and inform you of this. Please note, grants in excess of £15,000 from our Donor Funds are possible but unusual.
