Ways to Give

Your gives do great things at The Leaven!

The Leaven is possible because of donations and the investment of time and talent from our supporters. And our results prove your investment works! Leaven students show dramatic improvements in school and increased self-esteem, and build stronger connections to peers, adults, public safety officers and their communities.

Want to be part of this amazing success story? Your donation today can help change the future for a local child. Here’s how you can help!
