Community First Whitby and Scarborough

The Community First Whitby and Scarborough Fund has been set up by the generosity of a local donor. Working with Two Ridings Community Foundation, the donation was increased by 50% courtesy of HM Government’s Office for Civil Society under the Community First endowment match challenge initiative.

As an endowment fund this generous donation will now be used to support the area and causes close to the donor’s heart long into the future.

The fund will support voluntary organisations, community groups, small charities and other types of not for profit organisation based in and/or serving the communities in the area served by Scarborough Borough Council and is aimed at projects working with older people and/or young people.
