Welcome to Middlesbrough and Teesside Philanthropic Foundation
We are a registered charity, set up by Teessiders for Teessiders. We help businesses and individuals join together to make Middlesbrough and Teesside better places to live, work and do business.
On this website you’ll find a snapshot of the major campaigns and initiatives that the Foundation is involved with. And for anybody wanting more information please get in touch via our contact page.
What we do…
Our purpose is simply to raise and allocate funds to assist community groups within Middlesbrough and the rest of Teesside.
We have three specific goals:
- To make a real difference to the lives of local people.
- To show the 400,000+ people who live in our area that there is a group of businesses and individuals who want to make a difference.
- To let the outside world know that we live in a special place where community spirit and a sense of fairness are important.
How it works
The Foundation is looking for funding applications from community groups which will then be evaluated against a range of criteria - the most important being that there is no other possible source of income and that there is real and sustainable community benefit to the project.
