Reigate and Banstead Community Fund

Be part of the solution, help to make a difference in Reigate and Banstead

The Reigate and Banstead Community Fund will launch in 2019 with your support!

The proposed new fund, which will be the 8th borough/district Area Fund across the county managed by the Community Foundation for Surrey, has been developed in partnership with Reigate and Banstead Borough Council, the Community Foundation for Surrey, and representatives from the local community.

The Reigate and Banstead Community Fund will build a significant and sustainable fund for the long-term benefit of local projects across the borough. The fund will act as a collective, allowing residents and businesses to combine their giving into one place, which will then make grants to local groups in our borough.

We are currently seeking founding supporters and donors who can establish the fund and help get things started.


The grant making panel will be supported by the Community Foundation, and will be made up of major donors, the borough council, and other local stakeholders with a knowledge and interest in the community. This model has successfully worked in other areas of the county with the Community Foundation, and provides an important local emphasis for funding in Reigate and Banstead.

The initial target for the fund is £300k, the majority of which will be invested into an endowment to build a long term sustainable fund with a proportion going towards an initial round of grants to benefit local projects before the end of the year.
