Charitable Foundation

252 charities have received donations from the Charitable Foundation so far this year.

In the first half of 2018, Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation has given away more than £341,337 to charities recommended by our colleagues and our members.

You can view all of the charities that the Charitable Foundation has helped in 2017 and 2018 on the map here.

One of the charities we’ve supported this year is the Lincolnshire and Nottingham Air Ambulance. The Charitable Foundation has donated £2,000 to help buy specialist equipment as it prepares to run its life-saving services around the clock later this year.

The fundraising Manager Gemma Shaw said: “Thank you to Yorkshire Building Society and to all of their members who chose to donate their pennies to the Charitable Foundation – this just goes to show that pennies really do make pounds and those pounds can help to buy real life-saving equipment for our charity.”

“When we're operational 24 hours a day later this year, the new anti-collision light will make a huge difference in enabling our crew to safely get to some of the most critically ill or injured patients in the hours of darkness.”

The Charitable Founded is funded by the Small Change Big Difference ® scheme where members sign up to donate the annual pence of interest from their savings or mortgage accounts. The average donation is less than 50p per year and the maximum is just 99p and every penny received through the scheme is used directly to help charities in your local communities.
