Elmbridge Philanthropy

Why we need your help

At Elmbridge Philanthropy, we believe in supporting local initiatives by providing grants and funding for specific projects aimed at improving our local community.

The charity aims to bring together businesses and individuals to encourage them to support charities and voluntary organisations in the Elmbridge area, by providing a sustainable income generation to enable them to continue to support those who need it most. 

Elmbridge Philanthropy supports local community and voluntary groups who are making a difference to the quality of local community life by awarding grants to fund their work. The Fund supports voluntary effort, not just for a single cause, but across all sectors including; isolated older people, those affected by long term illness and disability, young people and families living in poverty and disadvantage.

The fund makes it easy for local residents to support the breadth of needs in Elmbridge:

1. Exclusively supporting local community projects

2. Pooling donations from companies, individuals and families to make a bigger impact

3. Providing a sustainable source of funding to support the evolving community needs

4. Developing the capacity to respond to local issues as they arise


Simon Lewis, Chief Executive of PMW and Chairman of Elmbridge Philanthropy has said:

"The purpose of ECF is to finance the hard work of local volunteer groups and allow their passion to have an even greater impact for the benefit of our community."

Recent grants awarded

A grant of £1,200 was awarded to The Brigitte Trust for their Volunteer Support Groups, supporting families where there is a life-threatening illness. These Volunteers provide care and company to the socially isolated - taking them in to town for shopping, a coffee or just spending time doing everyday activities where they may otherwise struggle.

A grant of £1,500 was awarded to Walton on Thames Charity KT1-2 Football for a project offering weekly free football coaching to children aged 6-14. The project specifically targets children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and has achieved considerable success in engaging with both hard to reach and "problem" families within the local community. Over 140 children are currently engaging with the project.
