We were founded in 1986 because we believe…
- everyone deserves the same opportunities to fulfil their potential, no matter where they live
- we can achieve economic, social and physical wellbeing across South Yorkshire
- that we can build stronger communities
- and that giving local can transform lives
For the last 33 years, we have raised and distributed over £29m in grants to community and voluntary projects across South Yorkshire and created an Endowment of over £12m to create a lasting legacy that will continue to support South Yorkshire for many years to come.
South Yorkshire’s Community Foundation is a part of the UK Community Foundations network made up of 46 Community Foundations across the UK, which manage a total endowment of £614 million. We have been quality accredited by the UK Community Foundation through external assessors to standards endorsed by the Charity Commission.
