Charity Fund

About

The RWHA Charity Fund donates to small, local charities in which Warrant-holding companies or their employees are actively involved. Small grants of up to £500 are open to employees of Warrant-holding companies who are fundraising for charity. Medium grants of up to £3,000 are available for Warrant-holding companies or their team to apply for a specific item, activity or project for a charity in which they are actively involved.

Grants have been given to charities across the UK, supporting a diverse range of worthy causes including the Cornwall Air Ambulance, Norfolk Blood Bikes, and Scotty's Little Soldiers. 

2022 marks the 125th Anniversary of the Charity Fund!  So far this year, the Charity Fund has given grants to 40 charities.
