Our beautiful Surrey Hills are in danger of irreversible damage from development and over use. To protect our children’s rural heritage, please support the Surrey Hills Trust Fund. The Fund will help to conserve and maintain the fragile environment of the Surrey Hills through a programme of projects and activities.
With your help, we can create a lasting legacy for the Surrey Hills ensuring it is enjoyed by generations to come.
The Surrey Hills Trust Fund provides the chance to support projects that will benefit local communities and the environment. Give locally to protect the Surrey Hills now and in the future.
The Surrey Hills Trust Fund supports a wide-range of local projects from landscape conservation grants to community enterprise schemes. Below are examples of areas of work that your donations could support:
- Landscape Conservation projects to open up viewpoints, restore landscape features etc.
- Working with volunteers to undertake landscape access and conservation work.
- Educating younger generations on the importance and value of countryside.
- Enhancing the ecology & biodiversity of the local area through practical projects.
The Fund has been established within the Community Foundation for Surrey, an independent charitable trust, which inspires local giving to create new community resources that will permanently improve the lives of people in Surrey.
The Community Foundation for Surrey was established in 2005 and works with community and voluntary groups that support the most vulnerable, isolated and disadvantaged people in Surrey. Their aim is to inspire local people who want to support their local communities to build permanent funds that will make a real impact on people’s lives.
The Foundation awards grants to local charities, community and voluntary groups at a grassroots level that help those living in areas of acute need and surprising levels of deprivation. The range of grants awarded supports projects across the width of community need including facilities for young people, sports equipment, reducing isolation for older citizens, improving community facilities and projects for the disabled.
The Community Foundation for Surrey is an independent charitable trust. They are part of a national network of UK Community Foundations, a growing philanthropic movement in the United Kingdom.
