We provide a personal service for individuals, families and businesses by helping them invest in local communities in Leeds. Our local expertise enables us to match their values, passions and interests to develop funds that support specific local projects that help tackle key issues and enhance the quality of life in some of our most disadvantaged communities.

Individuals & Families

We work closely with individuals and families to develop their philanthropy and have developed a very flexible approach depending on the donor’s specific needs.


Whether you have an established CSR plan and team or not we can offer you a simple, flexible and effective way of making a difference in your community. From Named Funds to our 100 Club patronage network, there are a number of ways we can help you invest in your city’s communities.

Trusted Advisors

We are experts in charitable giving, community needs, and finding effective solutions that have the greatest impact. We work with a number of firms of solicitors, accountants and wealth advisors to meet a variety of client needs.

Trusts & Foundations

We help charitable trusts and foundations give to local groups and individuals in a focused and strategic manner. Using our local knowledge we can provide help where you need it from promoting your own grants programmes to local groups through to providing a full grants management service.



We can accept eligible gifts of cash, shares and property and we can help you give time and expertise. We guarantee we will never share your details with anyone else unless you ask us to.

Please note: For the proper functioning of the Foundation, donors are reminded that all donations once given, become the property of the Foundation and are non-refundable. While the donor can steer where the money is directed – i.e. to which charitable purpose it is ultimately addressed – the money remains the property of the Foundation until it is distributed as a grant. This avoids all possibility of money laundering and thereby protects all donors, as well as the foundation and its beneficiaries.
