Leeds Community Foundation distributes vital grants and gives trusted advice to voluntary groups and charities across Leeds and Bradford to influence positive change. Driven by creating meaningful social impact for thousands of local people every year, Leeds Community Foundation distributed £5.8m in 2020/21. Since we gave out our first grant 16 years ago, we have distributed over £54m in grants.
We are seeking to grow our Board of Trustees to shape the future of our organisation. If you care about Leeds and Bradford and are ambitious to see communities prosper, we need people like you to join our Board and we would love to talk to you! You will join a friendly, diverse and effective team of Trustees and staff and work to take the Foundation forward with your experience, skill, passion and commitment.
A recent skills analysis of our board has identified gaps in the following areas:
Knowledge of local communities and their strengths
Our aim is for our Trustee Board and Subcommittees to reflect the diverse communities that we work with. We would particularly welcome applications from those under 30 years old, disabled people and LGBTQIA+ people, as these groups are currently under-represented on our Board.
