In 2011, St Chad’s Parish Church in Far Headingley set up a special Endowment Fund with Leeds Community Foundation, which benefited from match funding under a government scheme called Grassroots Grants. We are now able to distribute the income from this fund every year, in the form of small grants, to local community projects. Funding is awarded to groups working in the St Chad’s Parish, especially those addressing isolation, the local environment and intergenerational work.
The following organisations were awarded funding in 2017:
Friends of Beckett’s Park
Help 4 Victims of Intimate Violence
Leeds Chinese Community Association
Purple Patch Arts
St Chad’s Lunch Club
Yorkshire Cricket Foundation
