The Isle of Wight Day fund

Like Red Nose Day and Comic Relief, the Isle of Wight Day is now forming its own charitable fund for which all Isle of Wight Day activities are encouraged to help to raise funds.

#IOWDay2017

Money raised here, stays here!

As Isle of Wight Day is a day for the whole community, all money raised by the Isle of Wight Day Fund will remain on the Island and will be distributed to deserving Island causes.

The Fund will be managed by the Directors of Isle of Wight Day Ltd assisted by a panel of Islanders who will meet every quarter to review all funding applications and to decide upon the size and amount of grants to be distributed.

The Directors of Isle of Wight Day believe that this annual celebration of all that is great about this wonderful island should also be a day when all islanders can help those less fortunate than themselves by using this day and the days and weeks leading up to each Isle of Wight Day to raise money through any activity or event, in the knowledge that every penny raised will remain on the Island and will be distributed to deserving local causes.

Just provide us with a description of your charity or organisation, the nature of your project or needs and the amount of money that you are seeking to achieve your aims. Applications should cover no more than two sides of A4 paper. The Fund is keen to spread its funds as widely as possible throughout the Island so all first-time applications to the Fund of £500 to £5,000 will be carefully considered.

The Grants Panel will meet each year during the second week of January, April, July and October
