How Can You Get Involved?

This year we gave out nearly £2.4 million of grants so chances are that if you live or work in Calderdale, someone you know will have benefited from a project we have funded.

You can get involved and be part of something bigger helping improve the lives of our local community, you decide what is right for you.


If you would like to make a one off donation, we are currently raising money to give out as grants to help not for profit organisations reduce their carbon footprint as part of the climate emergency.
