Ligands are electron donors that are generally attracted to the metal at the center of the complex.

A ligand is an ion or molecule (functional group) that binds to a central metal atom to form a coordination complex. The bonding with the metal generally involves donation of one or more of the ligand's electron pairs.

They can be thought of as the electron pair donors. They attach to the transition metal to form the coordination compouds.
