The Great Give 2021

April 5th, 2021

Have you heard of the Great Give? It is a 36-hour, online-giving fundraising event for Greater New Haven nonprofits on May 4th and 5th. LEAP hopes to raise $40,000 for our return to in-person programming. Last year we had some wonderful alumni and supporters act as LEAP Ambassadors during the Great Give and the results were incredible. They were able to raise thousands of dollars! Are you interested in being a LEAP Ambassador? Contact Erin Bond at ebond@leapforkids.org. We will make it very easy for you, just get in touch!

“LEAP has made me a better reader. I love reading with my counselors, and I’m also so excited that LEAP gave me books to bring home because before all I had was baby books.” 

 

To improve their literacy skills and close the achievement gap, LEAP kids read an average of 17 books every summer and get to keep 5 books for their home libraries. Payton shares her new books with her three siblings.
