About Us


Creating a city of opportunity for all

Thousands of charities and voluntary groups across the city work tirelessly to address 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 and 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’. We also work with national and local funders as partners, using our local knowledge to maximise the impact of funding which we administer on their behalf.

Leeds Community Foundation connects people who want to make a real difference to our city.

The UK Community Foundations Network

There are 46 Community Foundations across the UK which make a difference by bringing together local philanthropists with dynamic local organisations and community groups who need funding and other resources. Founded in the heart of local communities, we work with donors, large and small, to make sure their gift has the greatest impact. 

Leeds Community Foundation is a registered charity (1096892) and Company Limited by guarantee (04443312).   We are corporate trustee of the BG Campbell Trust Fund (Registered Charity 255369) which helps poor or necessitous employees, former employees of Allied Colloids Ltd and their dependents.  LCF is also the sole member of GFS Community Enterprise which is a Company (Registered Number 10042412) and is in the process of being registered as a charity.
