Women and Girls Fund

Two Ridings Community Foundation recently administered the Tampon Tax Community Fund. The response was overwhelming, with such a large number of applications leaving the fund hugely oversubscribed. This unprecendented demand for funding highlighted the need for a Women and Girls Fund.

The idea for the fund came about as a result of the long standing partnership between the Rotary Club of York and the Two Ridings Community Foundation. Rotarians Sheila Weatherburn and Diana Naish organised a lunch to support the work started by the Tampon Tax grants, and this kick-started Women and Girls.

Two Ridings Community Foundation welcome donations into the new Women and Girls fund to help groups across North & East Yorkshire working to provide support to vulnerable women and girls.
