Skipton Building Society's Grassroots Giving community funding scheme is donating £82,500 to help small groups and organisations make a difference in their neighbourhood.
The 165 winning groups have now been announced and can be viewed here. They will all receive funding of £500 to help them build a brighter future in their local communities.
Grassroots Giving was launched in 2013 to celebrate the Society’s 160th anniversary and proved an immediate success. It was designed to reflect our mutual roots and established to help people and communities to help themselves.
Grassroots Giving 2018 is donating pots of money to smaller, community minded organisations which would normally struggle to win funding. This will help a large number of organisations across the UK make a big difference to their neighbourhoods and communities.
This year we had a total of 743 applications for funding and a record of over 51,000 votes were cast by the public to choose the 165 winners.
The Grassroots Giving scheme has now helped 975 community groups across the UK with total funding of £487,500.
