The Elmbridge Community Fund
In 2016 we became the Founding Corporate Partner for the Elmbridge Community Fund (ECF), part of the Community Foundation for Surrey. The organisation provides grants and support for local community needs and voluntary groups in the Elmbridge area. As part of our funding agreement, we gave an initial donation to the charity, along with a commitment to provide an annual donation at the end of each year.
Annual donations are calculated with reference to the annual profit achieved by the PMW Academy Portfolio; an investment fund created to assist in the training and development of PMW staff. This fund was established with company money to enable trainee staff to act as fund managers and learn from both their successes and failures before taking responsibility for clients portfolios.
In January 2017, Simon Lewis was honoured to be invited to become Chairman of ECF. The position has allowed him to be fully involved in increasing awareness of the charity within the local community and use his expertise to ensure the efficient running of the fund.
The purpose of ECF is to finance the hard work of local volunteer groups and allow their passion to have an even greater impact for the benefit of our community.
