Deadline: 31 July 2018

The idea behind Skipton Building Society's Grassroots Giving campaign is to help community organisations, or groups, who only have access to limited funding from elsewhere.

For this reason, registered charities will not be able to request funding via Grassroots Giving (the Skipton Building Society Charitable Foundation, founded in 2000, is their dedicated funding stream for charities).

Applications for grants of £500 are invited from any community group based in the UK where people involved in the group are all volunteers. Groups must show how a Grassroots Giving donation would benefit their community, and in particular vulnerable people (e.g. homeless, elderly, deprived areas, etc).
