The Isle of Wight has around 1,200 voluntary groups bringing volunteers together to improve the quality of life for others or to address disadvantage. 

The Isle of Wight Community Fund (IWCF) was set up by Isle of Wight people to support local communities, and we have awarded over £750,000 of grants to over 200 community groups and charities.

We now manage over £1.3 million (2016) of funds dedicated to Island causes. 

We are here to make it easy for you as an Isle of Wight charity to apply for a grant; and as a company or an individual wishing to donate money to Isle of Wight causes, and we ensure that your donations go where they are really needed and will make a difference.

The IWCF awards grants to charities and community groups whose work benefits people on the Isle of Wight, and we are particularly keen to support smaller groups where a grant can make a real difference.
