2020…what a year, what a year of unknowns, what a year of changes, what a year of challenges. First and foremost, I hope this finds you, your family and your friends healthy and safe all while maintaining the social distancing guidelines!
It is with regret that the Leota Braun Charitable Foundation Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to cancel the Annual Harvest Banquet.
For eighteen years this banquet has been a catalyst to provide scholarships to the graduating seniors at Parkway Local Schools. The Leota Braun Charitable Foundation awards three scholarships annually, two LBCF scholarships in the amount of $500 each and one Robert Thompson scholarship in the amount of $1000, we also oversee a one-time grant for continuing education in the Medical or Dental field.
Leota Braun Charitable Foundation mission statement is clear and it all began in 2002 with members of our communities having a vision for the future of our citizens and more importantly our students. The mission of the foundation is to provide financial support for projects and activities that will improve the quality of life for the residents of Mendon, Rockford, Willshire and the surrounding rural areas of the Parkway Local School District. The foundation provides the vehicle for donors to make tax advantage charitable contributions for the benefit of the foundation's areas of service. It also assures the ongoing competent management, investment and distribution of the donated funds throughout and beyond the lifetime of donors in accordance of their wishes.
The Board of Directors enhanced the banquet by auctioning off a "Directors Box", this box contained a donation made by each director in the form of monetary or gift cards. This part of the banquet in years past has allowed the directors to increase the number of scholarships given, with the cancellation of the banquet; we will not have this opportunity so that is where we need your help.
Would you please consider making a monetary donation to the Leota Braun Charitable Foundation for the students of Parkway Local Schools? Your donation to the scholarship fund will have a lasting impact on the lives of our students. We are molding the future of our communities.
Enclosed is a tax-deductible contribution card along with a pre-stamped envelope for your convenience or you can visit our website www.leotabraun.org http://www.leotabraun.org and make your donation through PayPal.
On behalf of the Leota Braun Charitable Foundation Board of Directors, I would like to personally thank each and every one of you for taking the time to help our students.
President, Leota Braun Charitable Foundation
