Community Impact Program- Imagination Library

Partnership Program

Leaders Education Foundation believes by partnering with other local organizations, we will enable a greater positive difference in community members’ lives.  By uniting to bring educational resources and opportunities to people of all ages in West Tennessee, we can develop life-long learners who will get to experience the joy of learning and someday Give Forward to others.

Leaders Education Foundation recognizes the same desire of developing life-long learners in the Imagination Library and its supporters’ efforts. Because the Foundation wants to continue broadening its audience and the Imagination Library’s supporters have already shown themselves to be interested in supporting education, Leaders Education Foundation proposes a partnership between Imagination Library and the Foundation. We can make a bigger difference together.

Through this partnership, the Imagination Library will receive a $60 donation for each new member the Imagination Library sends to the Foundation, up to a total of $25,000. As a result, Imagination Library supporters can become Foundation members by paying a minimum $10 membership fee and at the same time cause the Foundation to donate $60 needed to sponsor a child in their community through the Imagination Library. This allows their resources to go even further. Leaders Education Foundation’s website allows members to include “In Honor of” when registering for a membership and paying their membership fee and any donation. This is how we will track the memberships on behalf of the Imagination Library. This partnership is being offered in all counties in West TN.  If funds designated for each county are not claimed, the remaining funds will be available in a second drive for all participating counties.

What is Leaders Education Foundation?

Leaders Education Foundation was started by Leaders Credit Union in 2019 as a non-profit 501(c)3 organization to Give Forward to its community. By Giving Forward, community-minded citizens and organizations have been able to bring educational opportunities and promote workforce development, lifelong learning, and training for students, educators, and other community members in West Tennessee. The Foundation’s impact has been felt by students who receive a one-time scholarship for their attendance at a traditional 4-year college or in a technical program; and by teachers who receive grants to fund their educational projects. In 2021 and beyond, we will continue existing programs, create new ones, and support other organizations’ programs that align with our mission of “Making live better, together.”

We believe education is the most powerful tool for changing the world for the better for all. Our goal is to bring educational resources and opportunities to people of all ages and in all walks of life. By partnering with Leaders Education Foundation, its members, sponsors, and other organizations can make an impact on our community that will be felt far and wide and for years to come. We hope you will join us in our efforts.

Leaders Education Foundation supports teachers, students, and other community members in all West Tennessee counties. A volunteer Board of Directors oversees the Foundation’s volunteer representatives in their work to support the Foundation’s mission. To learn more, please visit our website, www.leadersgives.org.
