Does Your Group Need Funding?

The Community Foundation for Surrey supports local charities, community and voluntary groups in Surrey whose work benefits our communities. We work with donors who want to give something back to their local communities and voluntary groups providing vital services for local people.
We are able to support a wide range of activities awarding grants to support project costs, core costs or capital costs (see our guidance notes). Each of our 70+ donor and area funds has its own criteria.  We ask you to tell us about your project using our Expression of Interest Form and we will let you know if we can invite you to make an application.
