Inspiring investment into Yorkshire to transform local peoples’ lives

Our grants tackle inequality, alleviate poverty, address loneliness and improve people’s wellbeing and opportunities, transforming communities and peoples’ lives.

With a vision of a connected, thriving region for everyone, we inspire investment directly into Yorkshire. As the region’s accredited Community Foundation, we work alongside social investors – funders, statutory bodies, families, businesses and individuals – who want to give locally and make a difference in Yorkshire communities on issues they care about, issues like rural suicide, homelessness, mental ill health and children’s wellbeing.

Because of our unique regional insights and strong partnerships, donors trust Two Ridings with their charitable giving to champion positive change where it is needed most.
