Flood save now open. Flood Save is a match funded savings scheme for business and homes not covered by the FloodRE scheme in Calderdale

We help individuals, families, entrepreneurs, companies, charitable trusts and public sector bodies connect with, support and invest in their local community.

So far we have awarded over £20,000,000  to charities, community groups and individuals in crisis.

We conduct yearly in depth research into community needs (Vital Signs) which provides us with a unique insight and allows us to match our donors resources and interests to specific opportunities, so their contribution is more meaningful.

Ultimately we improve lives and unite the people of Calderdale through philanthropy. Thanks to our donors and the funds they have established, we are able to work to strengthen communities across the borough.

Watermark Calderdale is a campaign to build a resilience fund for our towns for future flooding.


Our aim is to build a pot of money that can be accessed by businesses & households immediately when future floods hit (because they will – it may be 5 years time or it may be next week!). Shops or businesses sell a WATERMARK product, and a percentage (or all) the profits go into a fund. The fund is managed by the Community Foundation for Calderdale who will then distribute the money if floods hit Calderdale again.
