Leeds Community Foundation and GiveBradford

About Us

Leeds Community Foundation is a registered charity, supporting thousands of local charities and voluntary groups (Community Organisations or COs) across the city of Leeds, and increasingly the city of Bradford, addressing inequalities and working together to help create opportunities for those that most need help.

As part of a national network of 46 UK Community Foundations, we invest in these COs 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.

Since our origins 19 years ago, we have seen how over £46 million of our investments have directly and positively impacted hundreds of thousands of lives across Leeds and Bradford. We invest in community solutions to the challenges and opportunities presented to those communities, doing ‘with’ the organisations and individuals who will benefit from the positive change.

Our Vision

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