The Business South Community Fund allows Champions to fund both small and large local projects in the communities that surround the businesses they own or manage. The idea is simple - we want to help businesses give back to the communities where they are based.
Every year businesses in the Business South region donate thousands of pounds to good causes. Many give as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) commitment to their locality.
Business South is launching the Business South Community Fund to allow Champions to pool their CSR resources and allow them to fund both small and large local projects in the communities that surround the businesses they own or manage.
For example, if you are giving £1,000 alongside nine other organisations, you can reap the benefits of a £10,000 project in your CSR.
The Business South Community Fund is managed by the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Foundation (HIWCF). It offers a working partnership for businesses across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight with a comprehensive charitable service.

- Be recognised as a pioneer organisation helping to create a healthier society
- Be eligible to sit on the Grants Panel of the Business South Community Fund and influence which organisations will benefit from donations
- Be acknowledged for your leadership role at the Business South Annual Conference on 22 April and in subsequent press releases
