The Leon Levine Foundation is offering Florence Crittenton a grant of $70,000 total, including an outright gift of $35,000 with a matching challenge grant of $35,000. The challenge grant is awarded upon FCS raising $35,000 by gaining new members of our 1903 Society and our Health & Hope Society.


When is the deadline?

The challenge deadline is June 15, 2018. Challenge runs March 23 – June 15, 2018.

How can I help?

  • Join a giving society! If you are not yet a member of one of these societies, increase your annual donation before the challenge deadline in order for your gift to be matched by the foundation.
  • Already a member? Here are other ways you can help!
    • Spread the word to family, friends and coworkers about this opportunity!
    • Host a party and ask attendees to make a contribution.
    • Bring guests for a tour of FCS so they can learn why FCS is a good investment and support our programs.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do pledges count? No. All funds must be received before the challenge deadline.

If a donor is lapsed (was previously a member of a giving society but has not given to FCS for one or more Fiscal Years) and gives $250 or $1,000, will they be considered a new member of the giving society? Yes.

If I have already made a contribution to FCS this Fiscal Year, can I apply what I’ve given so far and increase my donation to reach one of these donor levels? Yes.

Are donations from businesses going to be matched by The Leon Levine Foundation? No. Only funds that come from individuals will be matched by the foundation.
