2016 is a big year for SYCF…

It’s a year which marks our 30 years of grant making in South Yorkshire. In that time we have awarded over £26m to over 8200 community projects like yours.  We would like to celebrate our 30th Anniversary by launching a new Community Fund. We want to give local people an opportunity to support us, their local Community Foundation. To make sure everyone can get involved we’re asking for just a £3 contribution towards this fund.

As a group that has benefited from our funding, we would really appreciate your help so we can continue supporting groups like yours for many years to come.

Our ask is simple – we would like you to encourage your supporters to text SYCF30 £3 to 70070 to donate just £3 to our 30th Anniversary Fund.

We would also like you to promote our 30th Anniversary campaign on your website, in newsletters and on any social media that you use.

By clicking the button below you can donate £3/£30/£300 or whatever amount suits you.

For 30 years now we have been supporting local charitable projects like yours and now we need your help so that we can continue helping local communities which make a massive difference to the people of South Yorkshire.

Date for your diaries:

Please put 11.00am on Thursday 19th May in your diaries.

On this day we need your help to make as much noise as possible about SYCF and to raise as much money as we can.

On this date we would like you to email all your contacts about our 30th Anniversary, tell them how we helped you and ask them to donate to our campaign. We would like groups to tweet about what difference our funding has made to your group – using the hashtag #SYCF1986 or on our Facebook page. Plus put messages on your websites and social media to encourage your supporters to donate to the campaign. We really do need your help and support, so we can keep helping local communities.

Our 30th Anniversary campaign will be running for a year.  In addition to raising funds we will be showcasing some of the groups we have funded over the last 30 years and the impact they have made in local communities. We really appreciate you support and any help you can give us for the next year or so.

Thank you for helping us to continue to help others. It’s going to be an exciting year!
