Guildford Philanthropy aims to turn ideas into successful social enterprises to help tackle community needs across the borough. By supporting social enterprise, the Fund gives local people and community groups access to the resources they need to get their ventures off the ground to benefit them and their neighbourhoods.
Social enterprise can play a key role in improving prospects in our less advantaged communities. Guildford Philanthropy aims to bring together experienced and successful business people, residents and communities to develop sustainable local enterprise schemes. These projects can deliver training opportunities, new skills and work experience to residents who may have missed out or bring health and wellbeing improvements to local communities.
The Fund also helps charities, community and voluntary organisations to become more sustainable and increase their income generation, as well as supporting enterprise and entrepreneurship across the third sector.
Guildford Philanthropy aims to change people's lives by creating opportunities and tackling local need. Guildford is an affluent borough but there are areas of disadvantage where people need support to get back on their feet. Guildford Philanthropy is a movement of successful local businesses and individuals who are building a fund to support less advantaged residents through difficult periods of their life. For example, we have supported projects that give a second chance to young people who have missed out on education and help people with disabilities or mental ill health into employment.
