The Leeds Fund Microgrants are aimed at small and emerging Leeds-based community organisations who may not be able to access larger grants programmes. They can be used to part-fund or fully-fund a variety of activities that will enable small and emerging organisations to support their communities through increased capacity or project work.

  • Priority for funding will be given to organisations established in the last 5 years
