There is power in giving. At Lead For America, we take pride in being primarily funded by the communities where our Fellows live and serve. As such, over 90% of our funding is locally sourced. This means that our dollars come from a mix of community foundations, governmental sponsorship, and individual donors. However, our community-driven funding model doesn’t end there. Over 90% of our funding goes directly towards supporting our Fellows. Therefore, when you donate to Lead For America, you are directly fueling a movement towards transforming our civic landscape. You are directly supporting a fellow’s ability to impact their community. Your donation makes community change possible.
