Community Foundation for Surrey

Jamma Project

The Community Foundation for Surrey is a movement connecting local philanthropists with charitable organisations that help change the lives of disadvantaged individuals.

Our
Approach

The Community Foundation movement is based on the concept of “local help for local needs”, and highlights empowering and inspiring charities or groups to donors looking to support organisations in their area.

Jamma wholeheartedly supports the Community Foundation for Surrey (CFS) in bringing local donors together with those who are providing solutions to challenges in local communities. Grants are directed towards tackling and solving identified needs, with the funding allowing promising ideas to transform into successful realities. CFS has awarded over £15 million across Surrey to promising community initiatives in the last fifteen years.

A personalised approach to local philanthropy.

The CFS funds hundreds of community groups every year, working in partnership with donors to fund a variety of themes. These themes include mental ill-health, training and employment, sports, the arts, youths, and the environment.

“We must work together to ensure we can continue to support our vulnerable residents” - Laura Thurlow, CEO

“Our vision is to build a strong movement of local philanthropists, connecting them with local charitable organisations to ensure that every individual in Surrey has hope.” – Community Foundation for Surrey

Surrey-based Oakleaf Enterprise was founded to improve the lives of people suffering with mental health and help them return to work. Through free skills training, counselling and support, this charity works closely with individuals with mental ill-health to foster confidence, reduce social isolation and build positive futures with the help of new skills and qualifications.

Oakleaf Enterprise empowers hundreds of individuals each year to create better futures for themselves, and was named ‘Charity of the Year’ at Surrey’s Business Awards 2019.
People

Oakleaf Enterprise

RETURNAfrica operates a safari lodge and two trail camps in Pafuri located in the most northern part of the Kruger National Park, South Africa. After having been driven away from the area at gunpoint in the 1960s the Makuleke people do now, as a result of the South African land restitution process, own the land with freehold title.

Despite this, they continue to live in three villages some 60 km away from Parfuri. Through RETURNAfrica Jamma funds a Drop-in Centre in each village where disadvantaged children can go after school to get a cooked meal and be assisted with their homework. These centres cater for approximately 450 children each day.
