Give to your community

We understand that giving is a very individual decision and that there are many different reasons why people and businesses choose to support charitable causes. For some it could be a result of their own life experiences, for others it may be a sense of duty to give something back.

The Community Foundation for Surrey is an independent grant-making charity and the central platform for giving in the county, bringing together those in a position to give with those delivering local action.

We offer a range of giving options to enable local individuals, families, businesses and trusts to get their funds to the heart of the issues that matter most to them in a way that is both efficient and personalised.

Here are a few of the reasons people choose to give through us:

  • We are local – we guarantee that your funds will be used to support the local community in which you live and work. You can visit projects you support and see for yourself the positive impact that your support achieves.
  • We make giving easy – we invite applications from within the community, carry out excellent due diligence, arrange for grant payments to be made and carry out end of grant reporting.
  • We are knowledgeable – we have unrivalled local knowledge of local community needs and provide expert advice and support in grant giving.
  • We are here to stay – we are building an endowment for grant-making so that we continue to give to support local communities in perpetuity.
