Kaye Family Fund

The Kaye Family Fund was established by a local family and is one of the Community Foundation for Surrey’s Endowment Funds, providing long-term support to local communities.

The income which is generated each quarter is used to award grants which meet the Fund criteria.

The Kaye Family Fund supports projects in West Surrey which improve facilities for leisure and recreation – particularly those relating to sport, for the benefit of local young people.


Examples of funded projects:

Walton Firs Foundation – £60,000

The Walton Firs Foundation is an outdoor activity centre that provides a superb environment for camping, skills training, games, nature and environmental studies, alongside other activities vital to young people, both individually and together.

This grant was awarded for the creation of a high ropes course, that will test and challenge young people to overcome their fears and help them to develop teamwork, self-confidence and communication skills.

Bagshot Infant School – £3,160

Bagshot Infant School is a special needs support centre in Surrey, supporting local children with special educational needs and disabilities, including those with physical disabilities, speech and language delays and autism.

Funding awarded allowed for horse riding lessons for a group of 8-10 vulnerable children experiencing emotional and behavioural challenges. The children in attendance of the riding group have a range of needs and this programme provided bespoke support to help each child reach their full potential. The lessons used aided communication for children both within the group and helped them thrive within the wider, mainstream school environment.
