How to Help


York Fighting Coronavirus Together is run by local people for the community of York to ensure you have access to the information you need about coronavirus.

Our aim is to improve wellbeing and create a safer place for everyone, through local efforts that enable individuals and communities to identify needs arising from coronavirus and respond by accessing or providing support in and around York.

You can make a one-off donation or set up a regular payment through CAF Donate.

£5 = If every YFCT Facebook member donated £5 we could fulfil our mission AND donate £1000 to every York foodbank
£20 = 2000 flyers delivered to local people or 1 month’s insurance
£50 = An entire month’s running costs; twenty people donating this would pay for flyers to a third of York
Other = The total cost of YFCT will be about £1,000 for the entire year – anything raised above this would be donated wisely, e.g. foodbanks or the Two Ridings Foundation.

Gift Aid

Donating through Gift Aid means YFCT can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give, it won’t cost you any extra. All you need to do is to make a Gift Aid declaration by selecting ‘Gift Aid’ when you donate to YFCT online.
