Our Impact

Working with local community groups in South Yorkshire, sharing their journey and seeing the results achieved by the grants we make is both our reward and motivation.

“The success stories of local community groups demonstrate the positive difference that SYCF is making to the region. This difference is only made possible through the generosity of our donors, SY100 members and the ongoing hard work of our volunteers, trustees and staff.” – Ruth Willis, CEO

We were founded 30 years ago for one purpose, to make South Yorkshire a better place and that is exactly what we have done and will continue to do for many years to come.

So far, we have raised and distributed over £26 million in grant awards amounting to nearly 8,253 grants given to community groups doing excellent work across South Yorkshire. Our endowment, the fund which keeps giving, has now risen to over £11 million.
