The Graze Community Fund

Graze Festival is a not-for-profit enterprise, run to raise funds to support local charities and good causes in the community. Surpluses from each summer’s festival are set aside in a fund administered by a local charity and distributed to applicants based upon a simple set of criteria.

The Graze fund is open to applications at the end of each year, once the surplus from each year’s festival is finalised. Applications must be submitted by the end of January each year. A small group of trustees will then consider each application on merit and award funds accordingly.

A summary of successful applicants can be found below for each annual festival fund. Two beneficiaries of the 2016/17 fund were interviewed; Twyford Social Club and Abbeyfield Winchester Society.

Please note applications are now closed for the 2017/18 Community Fund.

The community fund is administered by Twyford Heritage, a registered charity in England and Wales number 1145389.
