Manning Stainton gave £7,750 to schools across the city in 2021.
It is part of its school support fund, which it launched at the start of last year to help schools and pupils affected by Covid.
A total of 28 schools benefitted from the pot, with donations being used to fund everything from outdoor play equipment and phonics lessons, to story books and creative art supplies.
Some of the schools that received donations, include Bloomfield South in Beeston, which received £200 to purchase sensory equipment, Grimes Dyke Primary in Crossgates, which spent its £250 donation on plants, seeds and compost, and Rothwell Victoria Junior School, which was given £540 to fund a school trip to Lightwater Valley.
Others included Primley Wood Primary in Alwoodley, which received £250 to buy outdoor wellies and waterproofs, Tranmere Park Primary in Guiseley, which was given £499 to purchase an outdoor mud kitchen, and Christ the King Primary school in Pudsey, which used its £250 donation to fund Lego therapy and chess sets.
Managing director of Manning Stainton, Mark Manning. said: “To be able to help so many schools and pupils at a time when they needed it most has been a real privilege.
"We always try to do our bit to help create thriving communities in the areas we operate in, and in the pandemic, we knew we had to step up to help children affected by it.
“Our school support scheme has been used to fund some fantastic projects which are directly improving the lives of children across the region.
"It’s been fantastic to hear how pupils across the city have benefitted from the different things we’ve helped to fund.”
The school support fund was launched in March 2021, in a bid to help schools access the financial support they needed to help pupils catch up after school closures due to lockdown.
