Set up a personal fund
Setting up a personal fund lets you get directly involved in community philanthropy without the need to set up a separate charitable trust. You can name a fund after yourself, a family member or friend, or a company or organisation. Alternatively, the fund can be completely anonymous, if you prefer.
A fund can be set up with a donation of cash over £10,000, through a legacy or by transfers of shares, land or property. Whichever mechanism suits you best, we will make sure your giving is handled tax efficiently.
LCF support: You may already be interested in a particular cause or want to focus on a specific area of Leeds. Perhaps you need some advice to learn more about the real “needs in Leeds” so that you can target your support accordingly. We will appoint a dedicated Fund Manager to work with you to set up the fund guidelines and then promote it to local groups. We will handle all the requests for support and assess applications and then work with you to choose which ones you want to support.
