Leicestershire & Rutland Community Foundation

Welcome to Leicestershire and Rutland Community Foundation. We are a charity who helps local individuals and companies to give money, in a tax efficient way, directly to local needs.

We enable local philanthropy. We set up inexpensive charitable grant giving funds on behalf of families, individuals and companies.

We also deliver grants for government, and reinvigorate dormant funds.

We specialise in giving grants to “unsung unseen” charitable and voluntary groups that keep our city and counties healthy, safe and thriving.
