About Us

The Teesside Airport Foundation is a new fundraising charity which exists to support people in Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees (the Tees Valley) to achieve their ambitions in education and employment and to assist in the regeneration of our area.

Our aim is to ensure everyone living here reaches their potential and goes on to find a successful and rewarding career right here in the region, in the knowledge this is a great place to live and work. 

We have a proud history of leading the world in innovation and industry and we have huge ambitions for the future.  Many exciting developments are taking place across our five boroughs. From the planned Southside logistics and manufacturing park at Teesside International Airport itself to Teesworks, the UK’s largest industrial zone centred on sectors of tomorrow including clean energy, offshore and advanced manufacturing, we are a region on the up. That is without mentioning our job-creating, valuable small and medium-sized businesses, ground-breaking research and development organisations and excellent education and training institutions.

We want to support our local people to grab hold of these opportunities by making sure they have the access to the education and skills they need to be a success and put the Tees Valley back into the pole position once again.

We have a close relationship with Teesside International Airport Limited which provides us with office and administrative support so that 100% of the money we collect in donations will be used to promote our charitable objectives.

We can support groups with grants of typically between £50 – £2000. Please get in touch with hello@teessideairportfoundation.org for further information.

We are currently raising funds so that we can start helping people.  If you want to support us with a donation, fundraising activities or as a volunteer we would love to hear from you.
