LEAP seeks benefactors to invest in our future and to help make LEAP Plaza a permanent home and sustainable source of revenue for our youth development programs. Our goal is to raise $2,000,000 over the next five years to retire two mortgages and to stabilize our operations through 2021. LEAP has a business plan to operate primarily through earned revenue from rent and service fees yielded through business incubation partnerships. The direct impact of these investments is greater/increased service to youth who are at-risk in our communities. The implementation of this plan is already underway and will be fully operational by the end of this campaign. Earned income from the business incubator will sustain LEAP’s youth development programs. We currently serve 200 youth per year. By 2021, we project serving 425.

  • Let’s help LEAP with donations in any amount to secure a permanent place for youth and young adults to thrive!!
  • The Success Rate includes helping over 1,000 students since it’s inception in 2007. Of 532 tested for controlled substances 433 (81%) have ben discontinued using. Of 290 students with criminal/delinquent backgrounds, 204 (70%) refrained from committing additional offences.
  • I’m inviting you to support my fundraising for the LEAP Organization. Please find out more and donate here: http://igfn.us/vf/360/DebraAnnMatthews.

We hope that you enjoy supporting great ventures in the community. Know that we contribute  monthly and we continue to offer support to all good things to help youth and to encourage business dynamics. You are invited to tour LEAP Plaza, attend our 1st season Music City  basketball.

Let me know if you need more information about either organization.

Danke, Merci Beaucoup, Gracias.
