“The Helen Boley Estate gift allowed us to be creative and engage our community in planning for Leopold in ways that build community and develop trust among many stakeholders. Without this gift, we would not be able to engage in innovative thinking that is based on our equity vision and beliefs”

Types of Funds
Find a Fund That Fits
ABC Funds. An easy way for schools to fundraise.
Our ABC Funds make it easy for schools, PTOs and booster clubs to raise money for a special program or project that benefits students. We serve as the fund manager, acknowledging donors, ensuring proper accounting for gifts, and assisting with fund promotion.
