SurreyCares Community Foundation is a not-for-profit charitable organization that provides funding, financial administration and research for the community. We serve the people of Surrey working with community-minded individuals, families, businesses, and charitable agencies, to create permanent endowment funds and then use the income to support hundreds of charities
What We Do
We know that you want to leave a meaningful and lasting legacy to your community. We understand that you care, and want to learn about the needs of local people and projects so that you can best support the causes that are important to you.
We know how to connect your generosity and your concern and match you with charities that serve the needs of Surrey. Our Vital Signs reports and our deep community relationships help us to inform you about the best ways to provide support in the areas that are of specific interest to you.
Your donation can be added to an existing or new Endowment Fund, a Managed Fund, or in some instances may be partly designated for Flow Through, or immediate and direct gifts. You can designate your gift to a specific cause, to an existing endowment fund, or easily open your own fund!
It's easy to give. We receive your donation, send you a tax receipt, and we annually grant out funds to qualified charities identified by SurreyCares as being of interest to you.
Giving through SurreyCares benefits you, and benefits the charitable gift recipient:

Funds are professionally managed to continue to earn while providing charities with needed funds
Funds stay right here in Surrey
Donations through SurreyCares are tax receiptable
Donations may be made with cash, securities, life insurance, and other non-cash items (subject to CRA guidelines, please seek professional tax advice)
What’s more, the money you give supports the cause you care about forever.
