The Children’s Home Society has earned a $75,000 grant by Leon Levine Foundation to match new, increased and lapsed donations.
The gift will fund child welfare programs in Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Cleveland, Gaston, Lincoln, Stanly and Union counties.
“The Leon Levine Foundation is doing extraordinary work throughout our community and this generous matching grant will help our agency provide critical adoption, foster care and related services for children who desperately need to be placed in safe and loving homes,” Children’s Home Society’s Western Region director of development Patrick Diamond said in a statement. “We are appealing to existing and new donors on behalf of children to reach our $75,000 match goal. This generous grant allows our donors to maximize their investment in CHS through The Leon Levine Foundation match.”
Tom Lawrence, executive director of The Leon Levine Foundation, said: “We are pleased to support Children’s Home Society as it continues to benefit the community and improve the quality of life for many in our region,” said “We are excited to partner with an organization committed to a mission so close to the vision of our founder.”
The Leon Levine Foundation is a private foundation dedicated to improving the human condition in education, healthcare and human services.
CHS supports more than 17,000 North Carolina children and families annually through services including adoption, foster care, family education and family preservation programs.
Contributions to the fund can be made payable to the Children’s Home Society and mailed to the Children’s Home Society, 2200 East 7th Street, Charlotte, NC 28204.
