Support Our Work

Hawkwood is a charity and we need to raise £150,000 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 a one off or annual donation 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.

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.

  • Enable extraordinary artists to create innovative work
  • Support young social entrepreneurs to grow their ideas
  • Work with the local community on environmental outdoor initiatives
  • Offer bursaries to support those on low incomes
  • Champion environmental sustainability through everything we do
