Give collectively

And make a bigger impact in Yorkshire together

Giving collectively with other people who share your interests on specific issues facing people in the region.

A fund becomes more valuable when it is built up by a number of donors. That means it goes further in helping the people and communities most in need.

Giving collectively makes your giving more impactful.

What our fund holders say

Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust

Funders trust Two Ridings

“Two Ridings know what they are doing. They have a fantastic track record as a grant maker and we have complete faith in their judgement in administering our funds. They bring local expertise and knowledge and have long-lasting relationships with community organisations across the region.”

Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust are passionate about providing opportunity for social change locally as well as nationally. They use Two Ridings as their intermediary with the community groups in York.


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.”

Bettys and Taylors Group are a family-owned, value-led Yorkshire business all about making a positive difference in the community. Two Ridings manage two of their funds.


Local business people supporting local causes

“Community Foundations make a real difference by bringing together those in need with those who want to help. If you are a local business with a passion for making a genuine impact and a tangible difference in the community where you operate, I would totally recommend becoming involved with your local Community Foundation.”

Sarah Jones, of Full Circle Funerals in Harrogate, set up a fund locally with Two Ridings. They saw it as a way to give people long lasting support in the area.
