About Two Ridings Community Foundation
Two Ridings Community Foundation enable people who want to give across North and East Yorkshire, York and Hull to set up funds and donate to issues they care about, issues like poverty, children’s wellbeing, rural suicide and social isolation.
From those funds and donations Two Ridings make grants and give support to hundreds of grassroots community and charitable organisations across Yorkshire. These organisations provide crucial services and life changing activities for local people.
The grants we distribute tackle inequality, alleviate poverty, address loneliness and improve wellbeing. This enables people to survive, and thrive, and helps to create strong and sustainable communities.
We work with funders, statutory bodies, families, businesses and individuals to realise a shared vision of a connected, thriving region for everyone.
Since 2000, Two Ridings have delivered over £19 million into local communities benefiting thousands of people each year.
As the accredited community foundation in the region, with strong partnerships and unique insights, donors trust us with their giving to champion positive change where it is needed most.
Based in York, but with our roots all over the region, at Two Ridings it’s all about local people being the difference.
