Leeds Community Foundation
Leeds Community Foundation connects people who want to make a real difference to our city.
Thousands of charities and voluntary groups in Leeds work tirelessly to help address inequalities in their communities. Leeds Community Foundation invests in these grassroots organisations to support the city now and in the future. We do this by distributing grants and sharing advice: we are a catalyst for positive change in Leeds.
The Leeds Fund was launched in 2016 as a new initiative for the city and distributes a range of grants to support new and emerging community activity.
Responding to a variety of needs, last year the Foundation distributed £5.5m in grants to over 500 groups, who in turn helped over 119,000 people.
Leeds Community Foundation relies on the generosity of businesses and individuals who care about their city and want to ‘give something back’.
Together we can create a city of opportunity for all.
