Since 1999 the Foundation has donated £1.8m to over 2,600 local projects and good causes across the UK, which relieve suffering, hardship or poverty. The Foundation primarily provides funding towards practical items that directly support those in need including those with disabilities, affected by homelessness, or with serious health issues.

Who can apply

The Foundation accepts applications from UK registered charities, or those affiliated with a registered charity.

Donations usually fund items of “capital expenditure”. That means items must directly help those in need, rather than contributing to the charity’s running costs.

The Foundation is unable to support:

  • Religious, military or political projects
  • Overseas charities
  • Individuals (including sponsorship)
  • Animal welfare projects
  • Medical research
  • General running costs, such as salaries, rent or utility bills
  • General fundraising appeals

You don’t need to have an account or mortgage with Leeds Building Society to apply for funding. They meet quarterly.
