The Emerald Foundation is the charitable arm of Emerald Group. The Foundation was set up in 2009 to cope with the enormous number of requests received from charities each year for support. Over the years these requests have grown and the Foundation now restricts its support to charities based in the West Riding of Yorkshire.

The aim of the Foundation is to support charities in the areas of:

The Performing Arts


Animal Welfare

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:
