Vital York – Step Change Grants

Information about new funding support for projects in the City of York area is now available on The Two Ridings Community Foundation website.
The Step Change Grants fund has been established by the generosity of the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust to provide organisations based in the City of York with the opportunity to apply for funding which can contribute to the running costs of their organisation and within this also provide the necessary ‘step change’ needed to increase their capacity to respond to needs in their particular community and take their organisation towards sustainability and/or expansion.
Priority will be given to applicants that can clearly demonstrate how they are working to address the following themes identified in the Two Ridings Community Foundation’s
Philanthropy in York report.
  • Inequality & hidden poverty
  • Health & wellbeing
  • Loneliness & social isolation
Grants of between £5,000 and £10,000 are awarded from this programme. The amount approved can be used to cover up to two years activity.
