Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation

Aims/priorities: The Charitable Foundation makes donations to registered charities, recommended by members and colleagues, who support beneficiaries such as children, those seriously ill, the elderly, homeless and disabled people in the UK. The Foundations can support applications to fund a specific project or items that will have a positive impact to the beneficiaries eg sensory toys for children with special needs, social activities for the vulnerable/isolated elderly or training of charity employees to deliver programmes.

The Foundation will assist with specific tangible items rather than donating to general funds or expenses. As the Foundation is largely funded by members who participate in the Society’s Small Change, Big Difference scheme, priority is given to causes that are recommended by Society members and staff.

Who can apply? The Foundation makes grants to registered charities or good causes operating in the UK. The Foundation only accepts recommendations of UK registered charities from members and colleagues, rather than directly from the charities.

Grant amount: The grants offered range between £250 up to £2,000.

Application process: Applications can be made at any time and are reviewed on a quarterly basis on 31 March, 30 June, 30 September and 31 December annually. Application forms are available to complete online at the Foundation's website.
