Help us raise more to support Yorkshire people and communities affected by the cost of living crisis
Our North and East Yorkshire Cost of Living Crisis Fund is a collective fund much like our Coronavirus Community Fund which raised over £1.5million for Covid response. We reached our target of £500,000 in January 2023, but the cost of living crisis is affecting more and more people, so any new donations will support more people and more communities.
We have had new supporters who want to make a difference at a time of such hardship and uncertainty, current donors have repurposed or topped up their funds to make an impact on the crisis and other grant makers are passing funds on to us because our knowledge and experience means we administer funds more efficiently collectively.
By building up the fund through a number of donors, it becomes more and more valuable and goes further in helping the people and communities most in need.
You can choose to donate regularly or make a one-off contribution.
