A new way to give back in Hull

Hull Community Fund

We believe place is vital. Somewhere to call home, somewhere to be proud of, somewhere everyone can thrive. That’s why we’re launching the Hull Community Fund, a unique initiative for the people and businesses of Hull to invest in their community collectively.

This is the fund for people who love Hull and feel privileged to be part of such a vibrant city. Whether they are an individual with family roots in the city or a corporate organisation that has flourished thanks to Hull’s people and connections, this is their chance to give back.

The Hull Community Fund focuses on supporting the very place and people they encounter every day. It’s about making a tangible difference in Hull, directly funding initiatives that benefit the community the most. The grants from this fund will empower vital charities and community organisations to continue their essential work.

Two Ridings Community Foundation have partnered up with Hull City Council, Hull CVS, The HEY Smile Foundation and Forum CIO to launch this fund together. We believe collaboration strengthens us, bringing clarity to a shared goal of a thriving Hull for everyone.

As a specialised regional funder working exclusively in East & North Yorkshire, Hull and York, we connect generous donors with community organisations in need, ensuring that contributions make the greatest impact.

When businesses and individuals invest in the Hull Community Fund, they can be confident their money is being used to create a fairer and safer Hull for everyone.

On Wednesday 3rd July 2024, the Hull Community Fund is being launched at Hull Minster .  Celia, Two Ridings’ Chief Executive will talk about the fund’s purpose, its anticipated impact, and the critical need it addresses.

A magical part of the evening will be the stories shared by community groups, showcasing their impactful work and the life-changing opportunities they create. Outkast Panda Crew C.I.C. Borashabaa Refugee Community Organisation and Maxlife Youth Project along with many of the community leaders that make Hull vibrant, safe and connected.
