For more than 30 years, we’ve been partnered with the Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland after setting up our first endowment fund with them back in 1990.

In 2016, we changed our approach to community donations and set up the Newcastle Building Society Community Fund at the Community Foundation and launched a plan to significantly grow the Fund and our charitable giving.

Since then, we’ve awarded more than £1.7m in grants to over 480 small charities across the North East, Cumbria, and North Yorkshire.

"We have been privileged to have Newcastle Building Society as part of the Community Foundation family for over 30 years. The Society’s commitment to our area through the fund we hold has seen support go to a huge range of projects."
