“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
– Dr. Maya Angelou

Since I was raised in a culture of scholarships and financial assistance, the Leesfield Family Foundation is a natural outlet for my family to now express its thanks to the less fortunate and those in need. Although small student loans were available during my college years, the community where I was raised did not ignore the potential of hardworking children and families. If we needed help, whether medical, educational or just working through a crisis, there was always a response of generosity, warmth and reassurance, without strings. So, the mission statement for the Leesfield Family Foundation is

“Generosity, Warmth and Reassurance.”
