Over £31 million in resources for Surrey! 

22nd February 2021

We are delighted to share that a total of £31.6 million in resources has to date been generated in support of local communities since the Community Foundation’s inception in 2005.  

Our critical role is to grow local philanthropy – bringing together local Donors with the inspirational voluntary organisations bringing hope to local people across the county.  

This £31.6 millionfigure is benefitting community groups and individuals here in Surrey, which includes our total endowment funds, funds generated by the endowment funds and made available for grant-making, plus donations provided for immediate grant-making.

As the Community Foundation continues to grow, so does our ongoing support to the charities and community groups making such a huge difference locally. There is now, more than ever, urgent need that we are committed to address here in Surrey. We would love to talk to anyone who may be inspired to support local grassroots communities.

It is with grateful thanks to our growing family of local philanthropic individuals, families, businesses and charitable trusts, choosing to work together with us to support Surrey, that this milestone has been accomplished.” 

– Laura Thurlow, Chief Executive of the Community Foundation for Surrey
