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.
