Grassroots Giving 2017: Winners announced!
The winners of Skipton Building Society’s Grassroots Giving community funding scheme for 2017 have been announced. This year we have a total fund of £82,000 to help small groups and organisations make a difference in their communities and the 164 organisations have now been chosen by public votes.
We had more than 40,000 votes for our shortlisted groups, a record amount for Grassroots Giving.
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.
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.
