How we help

We believe that charity begins at home, so we make regular donations to organisations that benefit local people and are based in the same towns and villages as our current and future developments.  

We’ve had to temporarily pause our charity grants scheme whilst we focus on bringing our business back up to full capacity after construction was put on hold due to COVID-19. Thank you for bearing with us – we hope to reinstate our monthly donations soon.

Charities we’ve already helped

By donating our land for parking before development began in Haworth at The Bridge, we helped raise thousands of pounds to benefit soldiers in the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, British Army Royal Navy, Royal Marines, The British Army and the RAF. The charity helps both serving soldiers and veterans, and their families.

In June 2016 we fundraised for the Royal Manchester Children’s Charity by walking the Yorkshire Three Peaks, after a colleague lost a family member to leukaemia. With the help of our suppliers and consultants, we raised £30,000 for the charity which was awarded to the leukaemia unit to help further their support for children and their families.

As part of our former Community Support Scheme a few years ago we donated £12,000 to twelve different causes in the local area around Skipton. Beneficiaries included Sutton Brass Band, SELFA Children’s Charity, the Firefighters Charity in Skipton as well as a number of local schools.

Sports clubs bring people together and are an essential part of the community. With this in mind, we have been happy to help local sports clubs over the years. Our most recent donation was to the Skipton Scorpions, of Skipton Cricket Club. Our help allowed them to create another junior team.

Creating beautiful living spaces that everyone can enjoy

Skipton Properties and Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust have teamed up to plant over 250 trees over the next year to create beautiful woodlands that everyone can enjoy.

As a traditional family business, with strong heritage values, it is our pleasure to support the Trust’s vital work. Together we can plant hundreds of trees, inspire more people with natural world and to get out into the countryside to improve wellbeing and learn new skills.

To discover local woodlands that you are helping to create, and to find out more about our tree planting with YDMT.

How do you apply?

We’ve had to temporarily pause our charity grants scheme whilst we focus on bringing our business back up to full capacity after construction was put on hold due to COVID-19. Thank you for bearing with us – we hope to reinstate our monthly donations soon.

We are giving away £1,000 to a local charity every month. We’d like to receive applications from charities in the towns and villages where our current and future developments are based. Please make sure that your chosen charity benefits local people – unfortunately we aren’t able to donate to organisations raising funds for international causes.

Please submit your application using the form below – we’d like to know a little about your chosen charity, how the money might be spent and the people it supports.

You’ll receive a notification to show that we have received your application. Applications will be reviewed on a monthly basis in advance of the next month’s charitable donation.

Please bear with us whilst we review your application. We receive a lot of applications and we’re afraid we can’t respond to them all. If your application isn’t successful in the first month it will automatically roll over into the next month, and so on.

Thank you.
