How we can help you give to South Yorkshire communities


Funding for community groups and individuals that delivers impact

Our Impact

Groups and organisations utilise funding to support activities and projects which make a positive difference to local communities.

South Yorkshire's Community Foundation gives money to initiatives which promote economic, social and physical and mental well-being, helping local people fulfil their potential. 

Visit our Case Studies page to read more about just some of the hundreds of community groups we've supported.

Barnsley YMCA

Children between ages five and eight years old have been supported by Barnsley YMCA, with grant funding providing activities to keep the little ones entertained and engaged.


Darfield Bowls Club

Read how Darfield Bowls Club renovated their venue to allow players to safely access the ground, including Harry who has a severe health diagnosis, to participate and be comfortable in the surroundings.


Blackburn Club for Young People

Funding from our Community Grants allowed the Blackburn Club For Young People to be able to bring in paid staff members with professional training to lead their sessions, delivering projects and activities for young people to keep them off the streets and away from anti-social behaviour.


Disability Sheffield

The weather has improved with the arrival of the sunshine and warm temperatures, ice creams are being enjoyed and it’s not long before school is out for the summer holidays. Disability Sheffield have been creating magical poetry thanks to SYCF funding which allowed the group to hire tutors to lead the creative sessions.
