We report on the status of an ongoing effort by the RQCD and ALPHA Collaborations, aimed at determining leptonic decay constants of charmed mesons. Our analysis is based on large-volume ensembles generated within the CLS effort, employing $N_f=2+1$ non-perturbatively $\mathcal{O}(a)$ improved Wilson quarks, tree-level Symanzik-improved gauge action and open boundary conditions. The ensembles cover lattice spacings from $a \approx 0.09 \text{fm}$ to $a \approx 0.05 \text{fm}$, with pion masses varied from $420$ to $200 \text{MeV}$. To extrapolate to the physical masses, we follow both the $(2m_l + m_s ) = const.$ and the $m_s = const.$ lines in parameter space.
