Wigley Community Fund

We have a proud heritage of supporting our local community and good causes

The Wigley Community Fund was established in 2021 to provide financial support to causes close to our HQ, Stockton House. 

We are a proud part of the local community and we endeavour to help people by providing funding twice a year to causes or organisations within a 5-mile radius of our head office.

We have a strong history of fundraising and supporting charities and we wanted to add to this by ensuring we offered dedicated funds that are available to causes and organisations local to us.

All applications are considered by a committee of employees that is chaired by Chief Executive Officer James Davies.

To apply, please read our terms and conditions, download our application form and return it to us completed and we will be touch.

Every effort has been made to ensure The Wigley Group’s Wigley Community Fund committee is as diverse and impartial as possible. Whilst we appreciate there are many worthy causes that require support, we have had to put these rules in place to ensure the process is fair and money is distributed appropriately.
