Named Funds

What is a named fund?

Named Funds provide a simple alternative to establishing an independent Charitable Trust, allowing you to give back to your local community and make a genuine and positive impact now and into the future.

We manage a portfolio of Named Funds across Bradford on behalf of individuals, families, business and statutory organisations, as well as national funders such as The Pears Foundation and The Henry Smith Charity.

Leeds Community Foundation handles the investment, correspondence, compliance and governance checks, helping to direct funding to charities and community projects that match fund holders’ values. Our aim is to help you to support high impact grassroots groups, making a real difference in our communities.
