Welcome to Two Ridings Community Foundation

National Emergencies TrustTwo Ridings Community Foundation is a hub for donors to channel funds directly to grassroots charities. Our aim is simple but vital. We raise and distribute funds fairly & efficiently. Right now at a time of crisis this is even more vital. We are the local distribution partner in North & East Yorkshire for funds raised by the National Emergencies Trust.

Nationally, and locally we are the trusted, expert advisor on giving, philanthropy and grant making. We ensure donors’ funds make a difference across North and East Yorkshire. We manage funds & make grants and through this website you can explore our work, make a donation or apply for funding.

We are a registered charity & the accredited Community Foundation for giving and grant making in North & East Yorkshire. We are a member of UK Community Foundations which gives us access to national or governmental funds to distribute locally. Last year we awarded over £1.1m in grants.

Platform provides day care in Hull for profoundly disabled young people aged 19+. Two Ridings Coronavirus Community Fund supported them in April 2020 with a grant so they could support their users.

Moorlands Goole were funded by Two Ridings in April 2020 via the Coronavirus Community Fund. This funding helped the charity to cope with the increased demand for their existing meals on wheels service and to enable them to provide an emergency response for people in isolation.

Two Ridings CF benefits from its experienced trustees, dedicated staff and volunteers to enable us to provide services to the community. At this time of Coronavirus crisis we are the local partners for the National Emergencies Trust across North & East Yorkshire.

Recently funded:

SELFA, a local children’s charity in Skipton. We funded this charity in March 2020 as part of the first wave of Coronavirus Community Grants. The grant helped SELFA to provide essential support to the local community including co-ordinating volunteers, organising food and medicine deliveries and providing activities and food parcels to vulnerable children and young people.
