The Wisley Foundation
Founded in January 2009, The Wisley Foundation was created to take a more strategic approach to the charitable funds raised by the members of The Wisley Golf Club. These members have donated generously over 28 years but it was believed that their money could be used more effectively if handled in a more considered manner.
It was determined that the focus of the Foundation’s activity would be to work with and support small, local charities in Surrey ( and its surrounds ) initially whose work was with the young and elderly. Ten years on, the Foundation now embraces all age groups in the Community. Surrey’s outstanding natural beauty and perceived wealth mask increasingly high levels of social deprivation. This combined with national and local government funding cuts has placed enormous pressure on the Third Sector to support those in need. The Wisley Foundation has recognised its role within the local community and the need to continue to actively engage with and support these small local charities who work tirelessly to meet the needs of the entire Community.
The Trustees would like to thank all the members and staff of The Wisley who have helped raise over £800,000 over the past ten years for the Foundation.
