Who we fund

Our focus is to support smaller, grassroots organisations across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Generally, we make grants of between £250 and £5,000. HIWCF’s grant making priorities are underpinned by the need to tackle poverty and inequality and to support work that is important to local communities
