Funding Available: £1,000 - £5,000

Closing Date: 31 July, 2024

Available to: Registered Charities

Type of Fund: National

About this Funding:

The Skipton Building Society Charitable Foundation was established 24 years ago by Skipton Building Society. Since then it has given away more than £3.4 million to good causes across the UK.

The funding is intended for UK registered charities based and working in the UK whose purpose is to:

  • Benefit children and adults particularly those living in socially deprived areas, through education to develop core skills and support wellbeing and mental health.
  • Benefit the wellbeing and welfare of children and adults by preventing or reducing poverty and homelessness in the community.
  • Support the elderly and improve their wellbeing by reducing isolation, helping reduce the effects of Dementia and Alzheimer’s and support later life/palliative care.

Grants of up to £6,000 are available, though the Foundation prefers to give smaller amounts with the aim of supporting as many good causes as possible throughout the UK.

The grants are to be used for items or activities that have tangible benefit to the charity’s beneficiaries.

For example, equipment to:

  • Support young people as they transition from homelessness to new accommodation such as toiletries, bedding, cooking utensils.
  • Engage the elderly in activities, exercise and experiences to help improve mental and physical wellbeing such as a large, digital interactive activity table for a care setting.

Applications are considered quarterly.

The next deadline for applications is 31 July for consideration at the September 2024 meeting.
