WELCOME TO THE HAMPSHIRE AND ISLE OF WIGHT COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

We are an independent charitable foundation that connects donors to the local causes and charities they care about, and we have built investments totalling £11 million for the long term benefit of local communities across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

We specialise in awarding grants to smaller, lesser known charities and community groups who offer the support, services and activities that can really make a difference to local people's lives.

Over the past eight years we have distributed more than £7 million in small grants to support over 2,000 community projects for local people of all ages.

To learn more about community foundations and their role in local communities please contact us for more information.
