We do NOT fund:

  • Organisations without charitable status.
  • Organisations not registered at the Charity Commission.
  • Large charitable organisations which currently have an annual income of £500,000 or more.
  • National charities, unless the project is based in Yorkshire and for the specific benefit of the Yorkshire Community. Embedded local management by a board of Trustees and financial control of all budgetary spending must be evidenced, usually by a set of Accounts.
  • Applications from individuals or student gap year costs.
  • Charities requesting donations for specific or general appeals.
  • Organisations which advance religion or promote faith-based activities as stated within the charitable objects registered at the Charity Commission. If this does not in any way apply to the Project for which you are applying for funding, then it is your responsibility to demonstrate to us within your application that such is the case.
  • Party political organisations.
  • Animal welfare.
  • Medical research.
  • Work requiring retrospective funding.
