Two Ridings Community Foundation is a major regional grant maker in York, North & East Yorkshire and Hull. Through the generous support of individuals and organisations they distribute around £2.5 million a year, supporting some 600 local community organisations.

That funding enables grassroot organisations to tackle the most pressing challenges facing local people today; issues like poverty, loneliness,and mental health difficulties. Funding helps them offer support & advice, essential services and opportunities for meaningful social connection.

Two Ridings enable the power of community to transform people’s lives across the region.   


As the region's community foundation, we walk beside groups as a force for a fair and equal North and East Yorkshire.

We are embedded in the communities we support and care deeply about the impact our funds have on local people. We are wholly invested in our work making a difference for the region’s people and places.

Our work goes way beyond grant distribution. We listen, learn and nurture, providing paths for new leaders, enabling collaboration between complementary organisations, and working in partnership for the benefit of everyone.

Our objective is that communities are stronger and more resilient. We do this through forging deeper connections, collaborative working and trust amongst all parties.
