Hambledon Community Fund

The Hambledon Community Fund encourages local giving to develop a greater capacity to respond to village needs. The Fund enables people who love Hambledon to donate money for the exclusive benefit of the village and its people. With your help we can help build a stronger community by supporting local causes that can make impact and that will empower Hambledon to help itself now and in the future.


Why Support the Hambledon Community Fund?

As a village our needs are very specific, and local people are often faced with reduced access to facilities and funding. Our dedicated panel of local residents award grants to:

  • Help older or disadvantaged residents combat isolation and stay happy, healthy and included
  • Increase facilities, training, skills and experience for young people
  • Support village activities, services and community focal points
  • Fund projects that improve and preserve the village heritage, culture and environment

How is the fund helping the Hambledon Community?

Since the funds inception, 22 grants have been awarded to village organisations with a value just over £21,000.

The Almshouses, Cricket Club, Church, Football Club, Nursery, Heritage Society, Shop and Village Hall have all received grants. In addition, the Hambledon Community Fund purchased a defibrillator and has supported several local residents in times of need.

In the last twelve months the fund has given £1000 to the Football Club for ground improvements, £2000 to the Nursery for equipment and £1000 towards the cost of storage heaters in the Village Hall.

How to give

This is a long-term fund that people can either donate to now, or leave a legacy to in the future. Donations can be made at any level, either as one-off donations or spread over a period of time. They can be donated as gifts of cash, legacies, shares, property or land.

To donate please go to our Enthuse donation page or contact us for more information.

Don’t forget Gift Aid! Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, the Hambledon Community Fund will receive an extra 25p from HM Revenue & Customs, helping your donation go further.

Apply for funding

Applying for funding is easy. Simply fill out a quick Expression of Interest Form (EOI) to start the application process.

Tell us what you want to do, and how much you would like to apply for. The EOI is designed to save you time and provide us with a little more information about your funding needs prior to making a full application.

The grants team will then review your EOI against our fund criteria and advise you if we can invite you forward to make a full application.
