Yorkshire is a place that inspires people to set down strong roots and care deeply about the issues facing their community. Two Ridings Community Foundation is an independent local charity
helping ordinary people do extraordinary things that make our local communities thrive, and improve the lives of people who live there. We were originally founded in 200o by the former
Chief Constable of North Yorkshire, David Kenworthy, who had been inspired by the work of other Community Foundations across the country. We provide local funding and support that
ensures that small local charities and voluntary groups can continue and grow, providing essential care, support and opportunity for the most vulnerable in our communities. All funds raised
are invested in North & East Yorkshire to make a real difference to local lives. Led by our local knowledge and insight, we direct support to where it is most needed.
We invest in local charities:
Straightforward funding for vital community projects led by local people.
Skills support to help resilience and growth.
A voice for North & East Yorkshire’s charitable sector to raise awareness and investment.

A trusted partner to share knowledge and expertise to inform your giving.
