About LEAF

How can you help LEAF?


The framework of LEAF has recently been completed. We have established the following committees in order that we may move forward toward achieving our goals. We need caring individuals who share our views to step up and join us. The following is a brief description of the focus for each of our committees.

    Provides for the establishment of specific “Endowment Funds” for academic purposes and long-term stability.
  • EITC, Major Gifts, and Grant Writing
    Charged with attracting contributions through the PA Tax Credit Program, Major Gifts from Individuals, and Grants from Private foundations and Corporations.
  • Alumni
    Provides for the long-term success of the Foundation through the creation of an Alumni Association for both short-term (annual giving) and long-term (endowment giving).
