Be part of a lasting legacy to benefit Cleveland. Cleveland is surging ahead today because of committed leadership. The Cleveland Leadership Center (CLC) Endowment Fund will help ensure this upward trajectory by providing resources now and into the future to accelerate CLC's innovative and entrepreneurial activities.
Why give to the endowment?
This endowment fund will provide CLC with the financial flexibility to develop innovative and entrepreneurial opportunities that help move our community forward. Funds will keep programming at the cutting edge of innovation, expand the continuum of leaders and help deepen their impact, and create additional customized projects and programming in response to the ever-increasing requests to launch new initiatives that address emerging topics and trends.
The CLC Endowment Fund will help:
- Marshal and deploy civic and intellectual capital to address pressing needs in response to community requests.
- Incubate, test and implement new initiatives that can have long-term impact, but are not immediately self-sufficient.
- Expand offerings to provide more transformative experiences for leaders of all ages.
- Promote civic leadership and collaboration as imperatives in moving the region forward.
Gifts of cash, stocks, bonds, retirement assets, real estate, or deferred and planned gifts (bequests, life insurance, gift annuity or trusts) are all gratefully accepted.
Gifts of any amount are welcomed and appreciated. Donors of $5,000 or more will receive recognition on the permanent donor wall installation in the CLC office.
