Welcome to Leeds Community Foundation

Together we aim to create a city of opportunity for all

We have a lot to be proud about in Leeds:

A vibrant historic city, full of opportunity, thriving industry, good schools and universities, and beautiful parks. However, not everyone has access to these opportunities.

Thousands of charities and voluntary groups across the city work tirelessly to address these inequalities, and help their communities. Leeds Community Foundation invests in these groups to support Leeds now and in the future. We do this by distributing grants, convening debates, sharing advice: we are a catalyst for positive change in Leeds.

Leeds Community Foundation relies on the generosity of businesses and individuals who care about their city; who want to ‘give something back’.

Together we aim to create a city of opportunity for all.
