Committed to local communities and environments

The Local Environmental Action Fund (LEAF) was established in 2006 as a ground-breaking collaboration between the Community Foundation, Shears Foundation, Greggs Foundation and individual and corporate donors.

The collaboration provided huge learning in environmental grant-making and made some fantastic achievements in the community. The legacy of LEAF exists through an environmental endowment fund at the Community Foundation, which will support environmental grant-making in perpetuity.
