Logo: Emerald Foundation

The support envisaged from within the Emerald Foundation is as follows:

  1. The performing arts – Opera North in particular. The Emerald Foundation has contributed to the redevelopment and renovation of the Grand Theatre in Leeds, the home of Opera North.
  2. Animal welfare, including Whitehall Dog Rescue.
  3. Sport – The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation and Leeds Rugby Foundation in particular.

The Foundation has adopted a policy to confine support to the local area, specifically the West Riding of Yorkshire. We also only sponsor charitable organizations and not individuals.

Our financial year is 1 January – 31 December, and twice a year consideration will be given to who might be the recipients of funds available. Any applications for support will, therefore, be held over until the next half yearly meeting.

The mode of communication with the Foundation will be limited strictly to the following:

  1. In writing to Sylvia Hall at the address below
  2. By e-mail to Sylvia Hall as follows: shall@emeraldinsight.com

The Emerald Foundation, Howard House, Wagon Lane, Bingley, BD16 1WA.
