The Wharfedale Foundation is a charitable trust that has its roots in the Christian tradition. We recognise a common practical vision of a better world with those of other faith traditions and none. We fund initiatives in Yorkshire and the Humber that bring communities together, support communities who feel marginalised and forgotten or, build bridges between communities.
