The international supplier of customised electronics, acal plc. based in Guildford business park, has signed up to become the first local business to be a Foundation Champion for the Community Foundation for Surrey.
By becoming a Foundation Champion acal will support the local Community Foundation to continue to award more and more grants to help the most vulnerable communities in the county.
The Community Foundation for Surrey is an independent charitable trust established 10 years ago to inspire local giving for local need. Since 2005 over £5.6 million has been awarded in grants to local voluntary groups, community projects, and individuals across Surrey.
David Frank, the Community Foundation’s Chairman said
We are delighted to have acal on board as the first corporate Foundation Champion. Support from local businesses like acal is crucial for us to continue to provide professional donor services and award an ever increasing number of grants. We would like to thank acal for their generous support and desire to help projects across Surrey which are making such a difference to people’s lives.
Wendy Varcoe, Executive Director of the Community Foundation, said
This is about local people supporting other local people. We are excited to have such an exciting local business support the work we do. The Foundation has continued to build year on year and support of businesses such as acal, enables us to continue with our ambitious plans to help even more of Surrey’s communities going forward.
