Two Ridings Community Foundation


Two Ridings Community Foundation (TRCF) is one of 46 community foundations in the UK. We operate in York, North Yorkshire, Hull and East Riding. We receive money from individuals, families, businesses, charitable trusts and public sector bodies. We give this money to charities and community groups who show us that they work hard, at a local level, to reach the people who need it most.

  • Two Ridings Community Foundation has delivered over £7.7million in grants since 2000, and in 2016/17 we awarded over £1.5m in grants. Please look at the IMPACT section of our website for a closer look at a few of the projects we have supported.

  • If you are a local community group or charity, the APPLY section of our website gives details of our eligibility criteria and which funds are open for applications. Online application forms are available to download here, too.

  • Our donors range from individuals wanting to support their local area, through businesses wanting to be recognised in their locality as supporting good causes, to national funders who value our local knowledge. If a donor would like their contribution to go to a particular cause (mental health projects, young people, loneliness etc.) or to a specific geographical location within our area, then we can work to ensure that the money is spent in this way.

  • If you are interested in donating to us, or in setting up a fund that we could manage for you, you can either donate via our Mydonate page, or arrange to meet with us to discuss things further. The GIVE section of our website contains lots of useful information regarding the different ways individuals, organisations and trusts can make a difference by working with us.
