Corporate Social Responsibility in Yorkshire

Engaging with your community and being socially responsible investors is an increasingly important part of corporate life. Businesses can build trust, connect better with employees and attract new business opportunities through ESG (Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance) investing.

But it can be difficult to find the time and expertise to approach Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efficiently.

We provide a range of bespoke philanthropic options so your organisation can make a difference in the community efficiently, with real impact.

We help businesses of all sizes deliver the local element of their ESG agenda and can help you plan and develop your regional charitable giving.

Giving something back to the communities we serve

We're delighted to be working in partnership with Two Ridings and were thrilled by the number and quality of the applications we received in our initial round of funding”

Regional businesses reach local people

“We truly enjoy working with Two Ridings, their knowledge is phenomenal, they are so well connected. As a grant maker they go the extra mile; always on hand to talk us through anything community related. Working with them shapes our ambitions for the future; reaching groups we wouldn’t reach ourselves.”

Making your own decisions with a Donor Advised Fund

“Working with Two Ridings is the perfect way to get close to charities and the causes and people whose lives they are trying to change for the better. Our fund is all about closing the gap for young people with limited opportunities. We are delighted to join in the Foundation's values.”

Nigel the Chair at In-site Property Solutions heard about Two Ridings at a Solicitor's event and got straight in touch to talk through setting up their own Donor Advised Fund (DAF) to support young people. We hold the fund for them, but they make all the decisions around it. They also supported with space Veterans Woodcraft, who now have a thriving community hub supporting Veterans and their families
