Surrey Sports Fund

Our Surrey Sports Fund provides funding to help people to access and enjoy sport who would not otherwise have the opportunity. This may be due to a disability, or challenging financial circumstances.

Grants are awarded to fund costs such as specialised equipment, coaching and other costs associated with the provision of sports activities.

Previous grants have, for example, supported:

Frensham Pond Sailability – providing facilities and activities for disabled sailors

£3,000 from the Surrey Sports Fund supported the purchase of a replacement boat. The two-seater dinghy, called ‘Red Admiral’ is specifically designed for sailing by disabled people. It is safe, very flexible, can be sailed independently by a disabled person or with an instructor. It can be used for cruising or fully structured and competitive racing. Indeed, one member of the group came in 6th place sailing ‘Red Admiral’ at an international competition on Lake Garda in Italy.



How to give

This is a long-term fund that people can either donate to now, or leave a legacy to in the future. Donations can be made at any level, either as one-off donations or spread over a period of time. They can be donated as gifts of cash, legacies, shares, property or land.

To donate, contact us for more information or simply send a cheque payable to the Surrey Sports Fund to:

Community Foundation for Surrey, Millmead House, Millmead, Guildford, Surrey, GU2 4BB

Don’t forget Gift Aid! Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, the Surrey Sports Fund will receive an extra 25p from HM Revenue & Customs, helping your donation go further.

Apply for funding

Applying for funding is easy. Simply fill out a quick Expression of Interest Form (EOI) to start the application process.

Tell us what you want to do, and how much you would like to apply for. The EOI is designed to save you time and provide us with a little more information about your funding needs prior to making a full application.

The grants team will then review your EOI against our fund criteria and advise you if we can invite you forward to make a full application.
