Many of our local charities rely on funding from the Community Foundation for Surrey. In order to give, the Foundation needs to attract local donors whose funding can help causes in our community.
The success of the Community Foundation is that it understands our local area, what the priority needs are and how best to address these needs. This knowledge allows them to manage and direct the donor funds to causes that donors are passionate about and will make the most difference.
Many CFS donors have said that they would never have come across the local groups they have helped fund without the Foundation connecting them. By setting up a fund with the Foundation, you can target your giving to make a difference to the causes that you care about and provide support to those who need it across Surrey.
In the past 14 years, CFS have generated a total of £25 million to support Surrey communities and have awarded over 3,400 grants to support groups tackling identified needs in health, education, exclusion, the environment, sport and the arts, and also training, education and employment.
