GIVE & GROW LEAF

“My daughter was very excited to be a part of the amazing LEAF. She can make connections with others, and is opened to getting to know and accept things she hasn't experienced before being exposed to different cultures and environments (through LEAF). She is happier, more confident, and better with socializing.”

-Estes Parent Reflecting on LEAF Schools & Streets Residency with LEAF International Haiti Artists

LEAF Membership

THANK YOU LEAF MEMBERS!!! YOUR SUPPORT has been VITAL especially during 2020 and our 25th year.

The Annual Gratitude Report below gives you the best overview of LEAF’s mission coming to life.

Membership is the KEY to LEAF keeping our essential mission-driven programs thriving, and the way we enrich our connection. With the loss of our main festival revenue streams, membership has been the #1 factor that we have been able to say to our Culture Keepers and Teaching Artists “YOU are supported. Your culture, youth and you are important. LEAF is here for YOU!
100% of Membership support LEAF Schools & Streets and LEAF International Programs.

LEAF Business Members are Community All Stars!

One the benefits of LEAF Membership is that we are connected to a global community of donors who believe in harnessing the power of cultural arts as a lens for cultivating cultural curiosity and bringing greater harmony to our world. Our members continue to inspire us by supporting cultural arts learning experiences for youth locally & globally. As you maneuver through our new normal and decide if, where, and how, you can support we ask that you look in your own back yard. Our local businesses provide job opportunities, join us in partnership and serve our community on a daily basis. We want to highlight the LEAF Business Members that allow us to do what we do, thank them for their support and encourage you to show them love where you can. Some of these business are sharing special deals with you, some are feeding/supporting their community as most needed, and some are striving to forge a path past this pandemic. One thing is for sure, like you, they are a part of the LEAF community.
