WELCOME TO THE HAMPSHIRE AND ISLE OF WIGHT COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

We are an independent charitable Foundation and the largest philanthropic grant-maker working exclusively across Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Southampton and Portsmouth. We are your local charity and believe that ‘charity begins at home’ supporting the local community groups and organisations that tackle deprivation and disadvantage, supporting vulnerable people within our communities, villages, towns and cities.

We believe in thriving local communities and we connect donors to the local causes and charities they care about. We have built investments totalling over £11.5 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 £7.7 million in small grants to support over 3,000 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.

Anyone who doesn’t “get” why endowment is so important must be a disciple of Groucho Marx who said “Why should I care about the next generation? What have they ever done for me?”
