WHAT WE DO
Wakefield District holds a special place in our hearts. Our mission is to inspire local giving, support communities and change lives. We do this by creating funds and distributing them to local causes and individuals.Wakefield District is one of the largest in England, covering a large geographic area. It has a lot to be proud of and in recent years there has been significant investment which has bucked much of the national trend. However, despite this, there are still major pockets of deprivation and it is these areas that we are aiming to target. Thousands of charities and voluntary groups work tirelessly across the district to address these in equalities, and help their communities. Wakefield Community Foundation invests in these groups and, where appropriate helps new ones to be formed.
