One Community Foundation is an independent charity in Kirklees that connects people who care with causes that matter
Working with our donors, we award funding to community projects supporting children, adults, older people and people living with disabilities to take part in initiatives promoting community cohesion, education, sports, health and everything in between.
We believe that local people have the talent and skills to tackle the issues affecting their communities. We have the expertise to work alongside them, providing investment in their ideas, helping to make positive change a reality.
We have a dedicated number of donors who are passionate about making the communities on their doorstep, better places for everyone. The projects we support rely on us because they often fall below the radar of national funders and we provide a vital lifeline to help them become sustainable.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
