Your generous donations enable us to help improve the lives of Carers across Surrey.
Supporting a charity can be very rewarding and we are grateful to all our supporters. Many who volunteer in service, fundraise for us or simply give cash. We understand our supporters want to know that their donation is wisely spent and we strive to ensure for every £1 we receive 90p goes directly towards Carers in Surrey.
There are many ways charities receive funding including the very kind donations from the public. We may also look for funding from organisations such as:
Foundations & Trusts
It is estimated that there are over 10,000 charitable trusts foundations in the UK who give away an estimated £2billion per year in grants. Most trusts derive their income for an endowment. Their primary purpose is to give away the money through making grants to the specific cause they support in the voluntary and community sector.
Community foundations are charitable trusts that support local community causes. Their role is to manage donor funds and build endowments as well as make grants to charities and community groups, linking local donors with local needs.
Support from the Community is vital to all charities and we are particularly grateful to the volunteers from community groups who faithfully raise funds for us each year. This may be the lady who hosts a Cuppa & Cupcake party for us at her local church; the Allotment Association who sell the produce from the allotment; a group of friends who organise a Jazz Night or runners who enter the British 10k London Run. Every event raises awareness of how we support Carers and every penny donated makes a real difference in the life of a Carer.
Partnership Working- working with local corporate business
We want to work with companies who resonate with our work supporting Carers to have a break. Working with your business will be about working together to ensure both charity and business benefit from a relationship. We will work with your Corporate Social Responsibility team to ensure your business benefits from the relationship as well as the charitable objectives of Crossroads Care Surrey being met.
