Leeds Building Society small grants

6th March 2019

Grants of £250 to £1,000 are available from Leeds Building Society. UK registered charities, or those affiliated with a registered charity can apply for funding towards “practical items that directly support those in need including those with disabilities, affected by homelessness, or with serious health issues”.

Donations usually fund items of “capital expenditure”. That means items must directly help those in need, rather than contributing to the charity’s running costs.

You don’t need to have an account or mortgage with Leeds Building Society to apply for funding.

Not eligible for funding

  • Religious, military or political projects
  • Overseas charities
  • Individuals (including sponsorship)
  • Animal welfare projects
  • Medical research
  • General running costs, such as salaries, rent or utility bills
  • General fundraising appeals
