LEAGUE Foundation is a completely volunteer organization.
We depend on our board members and other supporters to help LEAGUE Foundation raise the dollars needed to fund the scholarship program. Equally important is raising awareness about the programs of LEAGUE Foundation and making sure the students have the necessary information when applying for a scholarship.
Here are some of the ways that you can help LEAGUE Foundation support its mission:
