Committed to local communities and environments

Our Local Environmental Action Fund (LEAF) is a ground-breaking collaboration between the Community Foundation, Shears Foundation, Greggs Foundation and individual and corporate donors.

After 10 years’ funding and learning, we are now creating an endowment fund at the Community Foundation as a legacy to support environmental grant-making in perpetuity.

LEAF awards grants of up to £20,000 for work that has a positive impact on the environment and quality of life in communities. 

To join the growing network of individuals, families and businesses who want to demonstrate their commitment to their local environment and communities,  you can give online here.
