Grants and Funding


Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation

Cost of Living

25 October 2022/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Grants to support registered charities and good causes in local communities across the UK to alleviate poverty, improve health and save lives.

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.


How To Apply

Applications are reviewed on a quarterly basis. The deadlines for application each year are: 31 March, 30 June, 30 September and 31 December.

The online Charitable Foundation Member Nomination form can be found on the Foundation's website.
