The Woking Community Fund is a fund specifically for the benefit of Woking and its residents established in partnership with Rutland Woking Ltd. This local company is leading by example by donating 10% of its profits to the fund but is also encouraging others to engage in local giving to develop a greater capacity to respond to local needs.
The Woking Community Fund supports local community and voluntary groups who are making a difference to the quality of local community life by awarding grants to fund their work. The Fund enables and encourages local giving to support local communities to develop and thrive by supporting voluntary effort, not just for a single cause, but across all sectors including; isolated older people, those affected by long term illness and disability, the environment, sport and recreation, young people, families and community facilities.
The Woking Community Fund makes it easy for local residents to support the breadth of local needs by:
- Exclusively supporting local community projects
- Pooling donations from companies, individuals and families to make a bigger impact
- Providing a sustainable source of funding to support the evolving community needs
- Developing the capacity to respond to local issues as they arise
