Who we’ve helped

In the last ten years, over one million pounds has been given in grants to a great variety of projects ranging from major emergency funding to small projects in medieval churches.

“The donation from the Feoffees was incredible and much appreciated. It was also a huge vote of confidence from a major York-based charitable trust, which I am sure encouraged others to support the flood appeal.”

Jan Garrill, Chief Executive Two Ridings Community Foundation
