Women and Girls Fund
In 2018 Two Ridings Community Foundation began administering the Tampon Tax Community Fund. The response each year has been overwhelming, with such a large number of applications leaving the fund hugely oversubscribed. This unprecedented demand for funding highlighted the need for a Women and Girls Fund.
Through a long standing partnership between the Rotary Club of York, a lunch was organised to support the work started by the Tampon Tax grants, and this kick-started Women and Girls.
We recognise that the demand for services or support specifically for women continues to grow. We are excited as we await a trust transfer of a historic York women and girls trust which will enable Two Ridings to continue supporting those that need it most whilst growing the fund.
Two Ridings Community Foundation welcomes donations into the Women and Girls Fund to help groups across North & East Yorkshire working to provide support to vulnerable women and girls.
