How do you apply for a grant?
To apply you need to complete an online application form available from www.hiwcf.com/grants. You will also need to submit required documentation as set out in the online application guidelines and HIWCF Terms & Conditions.
What happens after you’ve applied?
We will assess your application and may need to contact you and your referee during this time. Any community groups seeking funding by way of a grant from the Fund will submit a full application to HIWCF which will be subject to HIWCF’s standard internal assessment procedures. HIWCF reserves the right to make any necessary further enquiries about the applicant This assessment will take place prior to any group being submitted to the Fund grants panel for approval.
If you are successful, the grant letter/email will include any additional conditions set by the panel and/or the grant payment The grant must be spent within 12 months of the date of letter confirming the grant. You must also complete an end of grant Monitoring report telling us how the grant has been spent and what was achieved. The deadline for doing so will be specified in your offer letter. Please note that failure to provide appropriate monitoring information will exclude your organisation from applying to future Moneybarn grants schemes.
If your bid is not successful, we will let you know the reasons for declining it. Please note we have limited funding available and we are not able to fund every application we receive, no matter how deserving the project is. The decisions made by the grants panel are final.
If your application is successful, you will be required to credit support from the Moneybarn Social Impact Fund and Hampshire & Isle of Wight Community Foundation on all materials related to the funded work. Successful projects will be required to be available for a potential Monitoring visit from funders.
