2020 LEEF Challenge

2020 Challenge

The 1st Ever LEEF Challenge

Supporting the Businesses That Have Supported Our Community

We need your help.

We have all talked about ways to help during this challenging time. So many local businesses have been hugely supportive of our community and schools, and now is the time to help them in return as they start to reopen.

Introducing, the LEEF Challenge. LEEF is challenging YOU to help a local business that has donated to our schools over the past 5 years. Or better yet, choose MORE than one! Here's how you can help:

  1. Purchase a gift certificate from a local business
  2. Donate that gift certificate to LEEF to be included in the annual Gala auction this fall, where it will help our Longmeadow Public Schools

Gift cards can be mailed to LEEF at PO Box 60782, Longmeadow, MA 01116.

The Longmeadow Educational Excellence Foundation is a registered non-profit organization with 19 years of amazing community support. We are your friends and neighbors, who want to show our local businesses that we are here to support them as they have so generously supported us in our mission to enrich the educational experiences in our Longmeadow Public Schools.

Wave One of the LEEF Challenge begins June 15 and is themed "Food and Fun".
Wave Two begins June 29 and is themed "Treat Yourself Right"!
And don't forget about our " Other Generous Donors".

Huge thank you to Longmeadow High School Sophomore Cooper Rich for designing our LEEF Challenge logo!

Please help, please share this initiative with your friends, and let's do this together, Longmeadow!

Your Support is Vital

It's a fact. We cannot provide grants without funds. So, that is where you come in. We are asking you to become a contributor to LEEF. We are painfully aware that there are many deserving organizations competing for your contributions. However, LEEF positively impacts your child's education experience. To minimize the impact of fundraising on you, we have a long-term strategy designed to build a self-sustaining endowment that will fund the annual grants. But in the short term, we must request contributions twice a year through our Gala and Phonathon – and leave the door open through our direct contribution programs. LEEF appreciates every gift, large or small. Your thoughtfulness and generosity will be appreciated by the children, their teachers and our schools.
