Recent policy emphases in the United Kingdom (UK) show growing attention to localism interconnected with philanthropy. This appears to offer significant opportunities for community foundations – geographically embedded multi-purpose charities envisaged as combining various grant-making roles with community leadership. Using a theoretical framework derived from political geography, we explore and conceptualise how community foundations conceive and operationalise their community leadership role across the UK's localism discourses; we find their strategies and approaches to be differentiated rather than shared. This challenges the understanding of 'community foundations' as a single model in its UK expression and questions their envisaged potential as collective pan-UK lead-players within localism policy.
