You can make a difference in a student’s future. There are many exciting ways to support LEAF, from volunteering on a committee to mentoring a LEAF scholarship recipient to sponsoring a Middle School Camp or an art classroom for The Umbrella Project. For all the many ways to support the organization, contact David Munson, Executive Director, at [email protected].
We’re always looking for new ways to keep our events fresh and our volunteers engaged as we work to help students find the best ways to fund their education. There are several ways to support LEAF through the following committees – Reverse Raffle Committee, Scholarship Committee, Finance Committee, and Singing in the Rain Umbrella Project Committee.
You can support the LEAF Scholarship Program in many ways – donate to help fund LEAF scholarships, volunteer to help choose the scholarship recipients or volunteer to mentor a scholarship winner as they journey through their college experience.
You can support the LEAF Umbrella Project in a very special way – sponsor an upper-level art classroom at a local high school. Your sponsorship will provide the blank white umbrellas and supplies for art students to create unique works of art in this hands-on project. The umbrellas will be on display at the mall beginning in February and auctioned to the public at the “Singing in the Rain” event in May. Dollars raised from the auction support LEAF programs and scholarships. Volunteers are always welcomed to help at the umbrella auction benefit.
You can support the LEAF Middle School Camp Program in many ways – donate to sponsor a camp or a camper who otherwise could not afford to attend or volunteer to help create camp curriculum. Camps take place during winter, spring and summer breaks and offer students experiential, STEM-based, learning opportunities in a fun environment outside of the classroom. Various camps have already included – Alien Yo-Yo Toy Company, Lemons to Lemonade Entrepreneurs and the Physics of Rube Goldberg.
You can support all of LEAF programs. LEAF has a rich history of impacting students’ lives in Lake and Geauga Counties by providing the information, inspiration and motivation for students to navigate the education process beyond high school. We have a responsibility to the next generation, not only to continue this legacy but to expand our impact. When you support LEAF, from volunteering at one of its many events, to donating to the Singing in the Rain Umbrella Project, you’re helping to make that impact stronger.
