Year End Giving

As we near year’s end, we have an opportunity to reflect on the past twelve months, taking stock of our blessings and successes while remembering our challenges. At Leadership Lorain County, we take a moment to pause and reflect on 2016. There is still so much to be appreciated about community. The young lives we have touched through the summer months in our Intern Program were just the beginning. As we head into mid-year retreat for the Signature Class we plan for additional projects like the two which served Family Promise and the Friendship APL video recording produced by the Best Class of 2016 with the help of Lorain County Correctional Facility. It turned out to be a fantastic collaboration for all individuals involved. Soon we will be recognizing five individuals and one organization as Difference Makers in February and it is so important that the opportunities in Lorain County remain for future classes.


Service is at the heart of everything we do. Guiding Alumni to their paths of service and inspiring others to give fills our own hearts with the desire to do more. But to do more, we need your support. Please consider a year-end donation to support the work of Leadership Lorain County. Your generosity means so much and goes so far within the community.


2016 Difference Maker Kevin Flanigan, President of General Plug & Manufacturing, understands and supports our Mission: To foster lifelong leaders who serve as catalysts for positive change. He has brought forth a challenge to other organizations to match or surpass his year-end donation of $2,000. Kevin knows, our work is important and is offering this incredible incentive for others to help us reach our year-end goal.
