Aims and activities

Aims and questions

South Yorkshire Funders Group is an informal grouping of grant funders which aims to:

  • Enable local funding organisations of all sizes to be better connected and informed in order to boost their impact on South Yorkshire people and places
  • Provide a safe, open and honest environment for discussion, respecting confidentiality and the diversity of funders within the region.

Its main activities are facilitating and organising networking, regular meetings, sharing information and intelligence, peer support and thematic discussions. It also works to ensure strong relationships with national and local voluntary sector infrastructure organisations.

Members of the group work collaboratively where possible in order to maximise opportunities to secure additional funding for South Yorkshire.

As a place based funder, collaboration makes the grantmaking of the region more focused, strategic, impactful and effective
