Last year 164 groups received funding pots of £500 to help them build a brighter future in their local communities. Our deserving winners shared a total fund of £82,000, and they are now enjoying spending the money in their area, with communities all over the country reaping the benefits. To see the winners and learn about their causes, you can visit our Grassroots Giving winners page.

In 2017, hundreds of community groups, clubs and organisations from across the UK applied to Grassroots Giving and a record 40,000 votes were cast online and in Skipton’s branches by the public.

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.
