About us

What we do

Leeds Community Foundation supports thousands of charities and voluntary groups across the city, addressing inequalities and working together to help create opportunities for those that most need help.

As part of a national network, UK Community Foundations, we invest in these groups by distributing grants and sharing advice – acting as a catalyst for positive change. Leeds Community Foundation relies on the generosity of individuals, businesses and public sector organisations to help local people to gain the support they need now, while investing in a brighter future for all. ​

Our Vision

Leeds Community Foundation is creating a city of opportunity for all. We work together with partners to create positive change with the communities that need it most, by investing funding and expertise to build a better future now.​
