Gatwick Foundation Fund

Gatwick Foundation Fund - Gatwick Logo

The Gatwick Foundation Fund was established in 2016 by Gatwick Airport. Gatwick Airport teamed up with Community Foundations in Kent, Surrey and Sussex to launch the Gatwick Foundation Fund which oversees £300,000 worth of annual grants for worthy causes across the region. The donations are divided equally between the Community Foundations in Surrey, Kent and Sussex to make awards to non-profit organisations including charities, social enterprises, community groups and voluntary organisations which play an important role in the local community.

Grants awarded may include, but will not be exclusive to, the following areas:

  • Employment, training and skills – helping people to gain confidence and raise aspirations through training and development of new skills
  • Families – supporting families and children in need and projects which combat social isolation and disadvantage
  • Widening horizons/providing opportunities – supporting projects that enable young people to have opportunities that they would not otherwise have and to help them to widen their horizons and aspirations
  • Elderly people – improving access to facilities and reducing isolation for the older generation.

The Gatwick Foundation Fund awarded its recent round of grants in July 2018 to:

Bloomin’ Arts – Musical Director £2,500

Bookham Baptist Church Children’s Centre – Family Support Worker £3,500

Jigsaw (South East) – Grief Support Worker £5,000
