Chief Executive Officer
Hampshire & Isle of Wight Community Foundation in Hampshire, UK
Date Posted 04/15/2021
Executive-President and Chancellor
Employment Type Fulltime
Application Deadline Open until filled

Hampshire and the Isle of Wight are areas often perceived as affluent, without economic or social deprivation. The truth is that there are very real issues in some areas that are as severe as any of those anywhere in the country. Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Foundation (HIWCF) specialises in identifying the areas of greatest deprivation and awarding grants to support the fantastic smaller charities and community groups who work so hard to help local people in need.

HIWCF has built endowment funds of over £15m for the long-term benefit of our communities and in the last 10 years we have distributed over £10m in grants to support over 3,000 community projects across Hampshire and Isle of Wight. We are proud to have reached nearly 500,000 people living in our local communities and to have raised over £2.4m since March 2020 to help those most effected by Covid 19, thanks to the generous support of our donors and partners.
