Each year, 10% of net profits from the Revive re-use shops is donated to support local charities with over £58,000 donated locally since 2018.
There are two funding rounds each year and registered charities developing community, health and wellbeing and environmental projects in Surrey can apply for grants of any amount up to £10,000 through the Revive Community Fund.
The purpose of the fund is to help improve community life and support the people and environment of Surrey, so this funding is only available for registered charities who plan to spend the money on projects within the county. The organisation does not need to be based in Surrey, but the project must demonstrate clear benefit to a community or environmental project in the county.
All applicants will need to be formally constituted (e.g., club, registered charity) and must be not-for-profit organisations. Applications will be reviewed by representatives from SUEZ and Surrey County Council who will determine how to award the funds.
