Your sponsorship provides for the total needs of a deserving student, who otherwise would be unable to receive an education. When you sponsor a student at The Leadership Center, your donation helps them get an excellent college education, provides for their room and board, and supplies them with essentials, including toiletries, linens and, if needed, shoes, clothing, and dental and eye care. As a sponsor, you are welcome to visit the campus to teach, mentor, and get to know the student you sponsor.
Because we are an all volunteer organization, you can sponsor a student for only $120 per month, per student. If a full sponsorship is more than you feel comfortable with, consider a 50% sponsorship for $60 or a 25% sponsorship for $30. A student can be sponsored by an individual or by a group of friends, a book club, an office, a sports team, a civic association, a charity or church group, etc. We welcome all sponsors!
