The South Yorkshire Community Foundation

Connecting people who care to causes that matter...

South Yorkshire Community Foundation aims to improve lives in our communities.

We do this through raising funds from businesses, philanthropists, trusts and statutory bodies and using them to meet the needs of local people facing economic hardship and other barriers to aspiration.

The future of vital community projects in South Yorkshire relies on the generosity of local people.  Everyone can be a philanthropist through SYCF.

South Yorkshire Community Foundation Chair steps down after ten years at the helm

Happy Volunteer Week!

This is always a special week for us here at the foundation because our volunteers are such an important and vital part of our work. Without them, we quite literally could not do what we do. So in recognition of all their hard work we are making the most of this week of celebrating volunteers and doing a bit of our own!
