Support Our Work

Hawkwood is a charity and we need to raise funds each year to help us thrive. Venue hire and course fees alone do not cover the costs of maintaining our estate and running our programmes.

Supporting Hawkwood by making either a one off  or monthly donation, by becoming a Patron or by leaving a legacy will ensure we are here for generations to come.

If you’ve enjoyed your time at Hawkwood, then your donation can provide opportunities for others to benefit from learning, creating and working in this beautiful setting.

There are many ways that you can donate to support Hawkwood, please scroll down for donation options.

Recovery Fund

Strengthening communities and tackling isolation by building participation in the arts, post covid

Here at Hawkwood, the COVID 19 pandemic posed a significant threat to the charity and, without the generous support of our patrons and supporters, would have likely resulted in the complete and permanent closure and dissolution of the charity. We are proud to say that with your support we have survived this difficult time.

Hawkwood will now be focusing on tackling isolation and strengthening communities by building participation in the arts. By making a donation to our Recovery Fund you will be supporting emerging, professional artists, as well as BIPOC and individuals with different abilities, rural artists, disadvantaged and at-risk youth as well as older people. Your donation will enable us to offer more reduced rate course fees, free places, and artist residencies and help promote artists’ work via our social media channels.


*Please don’t forget you can also Gift Aid your donations on the check out page.

We are very grateful to all who have supported us so far; a big thank you to Arts Council England, The Francis W Reckitt Arts Trust, The Summerfield Charitable Trust and The Gloucestershire Funders. Every contribution, however big or small, will help us continue our precious work.

Legacy Donations


When you write your will, we know you’ll want to take care of your loved ones first and foremost. After this, including a gift to Hawkwood is a meaningful way to support our work and to leave a lasting legacy.

Remembering Hawkwood in your Will or giving an In Memory gift to honour a loved one, enables us to look after the place that matters to you, long into the future.

To find out more about how you can leave a legacy, protect this beautiful estate and provide opportunities for the next generation, please call Alicia Carey on 01453 769833,

The one thing I feel more and more strongly, in these troubled times, is that we really have to support places and people that help make things happen for other people. Hawkwood has been doing this for a very long time, with purpose, creativity and deep compassion. Now, more than ever, they need our help to make it happen.
