the Community Foundation for the people of Kirklees.

Looking for funds in Kirklees?

Does your Kirklees voluntary group require additional funding? We currently manage the following Kirklees funds. Find out which could benefit your community group, follow the links to each fund for more information.


We make grants to a wide range of organisations. The Foundation is particularly keen to help grassroots community groups, and small-to-medium-sized voluntary organisations, and priority will be given to these groups. We do not normally make grants to large UK-wide charities, but we might do so where there are strong relationships in our area, and the proposal has potential to achieve a substantial impact. If in doubt whether your application can be considered, please contact us (01484) 468397.

For more information about our applicaton process, please follow this link.

Please note: Groups can only make one application for funding in each grants round - multiple applications to all open funds will not be allowed.
