Still time to apply for our IW Foundation grant money

Posted on: April 15, 2024 at 11:00 am

Time is running out to apply for a 2024 grant from Island Roads’ Isle of Wight Foundation.

Each year the foundation, made up of the partners behind Island Roads, issue grants of between £3,000 and £16,000 to charities and not for profit/community organisations working to tackle social exclusion.

Since 2014, the foundation – comprising Island Roads, Meridiam, Vinci Concessions and Island Roads Services – has donated well over £800,000 to such projects.

Those wishing to apply for grants this year have until noon on May 6 to get their application in.

IW Foundation chairman Rob Gillespie said: “Once again we have received some really interesting applications from some very worthy causes.

“But we are keen to ensure every group who meets our criteria gets every chance to make their application so we are once again reminding the community that the deadline for this years’ grant call is approaching.”

Please send your completed application by email to or by post or by hand to Island Roads, St Christopher House, 42 Daish Way, Newport. Isle of Wight. PO30 5XJ.
