Grassroots Giving 2017: Voting is now CLOSED!
Skipton Building Society’s Grassroots Giving community funding scheme is now in the final stages and voting is now closed. We are busy collating and verifying the votes and will announce our winners on 7 November 2017. This year we have a total fund of £82,000 to help small groups and organisations make a difference in their communities.
The winners, 164 community groups, will receive funding of £500 to help build a brighter future in their local communities. Last year, our 163 deserving winners shared a total fund of £81,500, with communities all over the country reaping the benefits. We are determined to give dozens more groups the opportunity to make a difference in 2017.
Grassroots Giving was launched in 2013 to celebrate the Society’s 160th anniversary and proved to be an immediate success. It was designed to reflect our mutual roots and established to help people and communities to help themselves.
