Brighton Yoga Foundation is a registered charity which raises money to support causes that are aligned to our charitable aims of promoting the health, social and personal benefits of yoga. Last year the festival provided funding for Clocktower Sanctuary’s Yoga for Young Homeless, a programme of classes for young homeless people in Brighton.
This year we are particularly interested in supporting projects that, like Yoga for Homeless People, take yoga to communities that might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience its beneficial effects.
This type of grant-making continues the work of the one-day festival in making yoga accessible to all, throughout the year.
As of Thursday 5 July 2018, we have launched our first ever Crowdfunding campaign through Chuffed.org.
We’re aiming to raise £10,000 to put the Foundation on a proper footing for the future – with an office and part-time organiser who will fundraise, organise our outreach work, and help to grow our annual yoga festival.
Groups and communities we’ve supported so far include:
- LGBT young people
- Teenagers in East Brighton
- Women recovering from stress or abuse
- The elderly and young children
- School children
Everyone that donates £5 or more will be entered into our exclusive prize draw for some fantastic yoga prizes, including a luxury yoga retreat to India. You can find out more about the rewards are on offer via our Chuffed Campaign page.
Help give the gift of yoga to those who most need it by supporting our fundraiser campaign.
And please share the link on Facebook and tell your friends about the campaign.
